I meant in assists too. Nearly half of his assists will be from freekicks and corners. Don't get me wrong, a good left footed set-piece specialist is worth their weight in gold, but if you're going to directly compare Mata to Silva, it's worth mentioning given that Silva isn't the primary set-piece taker at City like Mata is at Chelsea.
EDIT - Ignore my point. It turns out Silva has loads of assists from corners too. For some reason I had it in my head that he didn't take many set-pieces for City, but he actually does.
