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.

Silva was taken off in the 67th minute of Monday's match against West Brom, reports the Daily Mail.

The midfielder left the field with a brace on his right leg, and will be assessed on Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury. Silva has pain previously in the ankle, which kept him out of action against Sunderland last week.

Silva (ankle) is in the starting XI for Manchester City's match against West Brom on Monday.

Silva has been battling an ankle injury for the last two weeks and there was a real chance that he was going to be held out Monday. However, with Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas both sidelined with injuries, Silva will gut it out and hope to maintain City's shot at the title.

Silva will not need surgery to repair his injured ankle, although he is still considered an injury doubt for Monday's match against West Brom, the Manchester Evening News reports.

With Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas both out with injury, City will really need Silva to lead the attack as they continue to fight for the Premier League title. Manager Manuel Pellegrini said that Silva is on a restricted training schedule, which likely means he won't be able to play a full 90, if he plays at all.

Silva was held out of Wednesday's Premier League match against Sunderland with an ankle injury, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Silva has been playing with pain in his ankle recently and a home game against Sunderland appears to be a decent opportunity to give him a day off. He is expected to be fit for City's next match, which comes Monday against West Brom.

Silva scored in the 57th minute and then directed a ball off Glen Johnson for Manchester City's second goal in Sunday's 2-3 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

With Yaya Toure leaving the game with an injury not even 20 minutes in, Silva was dominant in the second half to help City tie the game at two. There is talk that Toure could miss the rest of the regular season, putting a huge amount of pressure on Silva to step up his scoring load. Up next is a very enticing home match against Sunderland on Wednesday.
