MANCHESTER, England — Manchester City says playmaker David Silva did not fracture any bones in Sunday's Premier League victory over West Ham.

Silva was taken to hospital for checks on his cheekbone and collarbone after being caught in the face by an elbow from West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate at the Etihad Stadium.

The 29-year-old required around eight minutes of treatment on the field before being carefully lifted onto a stretcher and carried off.

But after Silva was given the all-clear, City says he will be closely monitored ahead of Saturday's game with Aston Villa.

City remained fourth in the league after beating West Ham 2-0.
