Pep Guardiola’s men have stormed to the top of the table, opening an 11 point lead and 14 straight wins.
City scored from two set pieces, as Silva and Otamendi scored either side of a Rashford goal.
Speaking afterwards, City’s Belgian star De Bruyne said: “Lots of teams lost points this weekend so it is a big one for us [the win] just to put more pressure on the rest.
“We have to enjoy it and then focus again for Wednesday [against Swansea City].
“It is a big gap. If we slip up we are still in the lead. We can’t be complacent. We need to do what we have all year.
“I prefer to be 11 points ahead than 11 points behind, that’s for sure.”
