Silva suffered a knee injury during Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Newcastle and he will be assessed Thursday to determine the severity of the ailment.

It's incredibly questionable why Silva was even playing in the match, and making matters worse for City, Yaya Toure also suffered a groin injury, though he played through it. The timing could not be worse, as the Citizens will host Manchester United this Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva scored in the 77th minute of Manchester City's 2-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday.

City were down 2-0 at the time and felt completely dominated until Silva's goal brought the Citizens back in it. The goal was just his second this season, which he's coupled with two assists, as he continues to be a significantly important part of the City attack, but it doesn't always translate to a plethora of fantasy points.

Silva, who was held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Bolton in midweek due to an ankle injury, picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over Hull City.

Silva has been a fairly quiet fantasy producer so far this season, as he scored in Man City's first Premier League game and hadn't been a part of any other score until Saturday's action. Nevertheless, he plays a vital role in an offense expected to score plenty of points this season, which keeps him very relevant in nearly all fantasy formats.

Silva, who was held out of Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday with an ankle issue, is fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City, manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday.

The injury was never considered serious and was likely just a little cover to give Pellegrini a reason to sit him. Silva is expected to return to his usual spot in the starting XI, as he remains a solid fantasy option.

Silva will be held out of Manchester City's Capital One Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday due to an ankle issue but manager Manuel Pellegrini said he expects Silva to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City.

The ankle issue is probably just an excuse to sit Silva in a game that doesn't mean much to City, allowing him some extra rest after last weekend's tough Premier League match against Chelsea.

Silva scored in the 38th minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Fresh off signing a new five-year contract, Silva showed the City faithful why he's worth every penny he's paid. He had seven goals and nine assists in 28 league matches last season, and if he can stay fit for the duration, he could equal or best those figures by season's end.

Silva has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City.

Silva has been an instrumental part of City's success in recent seasons and has therefore been rewarded with a new deal. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder had seven goals and nine assists in 28 league matches last season and remains one of the most exciting players in the Premier League. The Citizens open the new campaign at Newcastle on Sunday.

Silva returned from an ankle injury to play the final 16 minutes of Manchester City's 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday.

Silva was potentially out for the rest of the season with his ankle injury, so it was a huge boost that he was able to return. He will be especially important down the stretch, with Sergio Aguero likely to miss out with a groin injury.
