not much. I think mata only ever scored 2 set pieces in chelsea and Frank handles penalties

both this year. the guy is the definition of hitting killer set pieces that somehow stay out

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.

I'd still say overall Silva is the better player. But Mata has been in better form this season. Mata's first season in England was better than Silva's first season in England and his second is off to flyer so far.

I'm just trying to say the difference is not as big as people seem to make out at times.

I'd say Silva has three edges over Mata

Speed. Shooting ability. And finishing in the box

Mata's not gonna get any faster, but he's timing his runs superbly and better than ever. Shooting is getting better. And even his finishing is looking pretty nice

Hes younger, so naturally silva will be better. But I think Mata's got a pretty good future ahead of him

I would say they are pretty much even. Silva slightly edging it overall, but if Mata continues in this form and Silva his over a season I would swap it around.

Honestly I'd consider saying Mata is better but maybe I'm just having trouble remembering Silva playing at his best as he hasn't really played great for nearly a year now and Mata's been incredible the past few weeks. There really isn't much between them though if anything at all.

People were laughing at D17 because he said that Mata is better than Silva. It is debatable tbh. I prefer Silva though.

Silva's the better player although Mata is closing in on him atm.

Redead, I'd add passing ability to that as well. Especially killer passes.

Silva has no doubt slowed down considerably from the form he showed at the beginning of last season.
