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.

Silva (ankle) scored in the 18th minute of Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

Silva tapped in an Edin Dzeko shot that hit the woodwork, which was reminiscent of Dzeko doing the same to a Samir Nasri shot during the Manchester derby on Tuesday. Silva, who was an injury doubt heading into the game due to an ankle injury he picked up Tuesday, now has six goals and eight assists in 21 appearances this year.

Silva has recovered from an ankle injury and is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Silva played all 90 minutes of the Manchester derby on Tuesday but said he felt a lot of pain in his ankle after the match. He was put through some intensive treatment in the latter half of the week and it was good enough to at least start Saturday's important tilt.
