Silva aggravated a previous ankle injury during Saturday's match against Leicester City, manager Manuel Pellegrini said.

Man City are already down Kevin De Bruyne, so losing Silva would certainly be another huge blow. At this point, he seems fairly doubtful for next weekend's clash with Spurs.

February 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva tallied five dribbles, four crosses and one key pass in the 1-0 away win over Sunderland on Tuesday.

Silva was deployed on the weaker for him left flank again but still managed to stay active and check in a decent performance. He's got two goals and still-team-second-leading eight assists, although, only has two assists in his last 11 Premier League games. With Kevin de Bruyne out for a while and Jesus Navas possibly out too, Silva may have to stick to the flanks a little more often which may reduce his effectiveness a bit and a tough stretch of games is coming for the Citizens starting with an encounter against the Foxes at the Etihad.

Silva scored a goal on five shots (one on target) and tallied an assist in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

With Yaya Toure coming off the bench, Silva was tasked as a main playmaker while playing on the left wing. Despite typically being more productive in the middle of the park, he scored his first Premier League goal since Aug. 10 (Opening Day). In 14 Premier League games, he has two goals and eight assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (knock) is available off the bench Wednesday against Everton.

Silva's injury was never considered serious, but given that the next fixture is this weekend, Silva will get a partial rest, with Jesus Navas drawing the start against the Toffees.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (knock) has been deemed fit for Wednesday's match against Everton.

Silva was held out of last weekend's FA Cup tie against Norwich City due to the slight niggle, but he will likely slot right back into the starting XI in his return. However, manager Manuel Pellegrini did say that it may be a risk to play Silva on Wednesday and Saturday, when the Citizens face Crystal Palace, but he did at least confirm that Silva is 100 percent.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva put in five crosses and made four key passes in Tuesday's goalless draw with Leicester City.

The Spaniard played the role of distributor versus the Foxes, but he appeared hesitant to force the issue, as his lack of shots will indicate. Silva has seemingly taken a back seat this season after the acquisition of Kevin De Bruyne, and he has yet to consistently show the form that made him such a dangerous playmaker over the last few seasons, albeit in just 10 league starts. Silva will look to get back on track Saturday versus Watford.

December 27, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva recorded an assist, created three chances and completed five dribbles during their comfortable 4-1 win against Sunderland at the Etihad on Boxing Day.

After missing five games after the October international break with an ankle injury, Silva looked like he was close to his old self on Saturday as he caused havoc for the rather timid Sunderland defense. If he can stay fit, Silva would be an excellent alternative to the irrepressible Kevin DeBruyne and with a trip to Leicester on Tuesday, expect more goals and a greater contribution from the diminutive wizard.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (ankle) is available off the bench Saturday against Southampton.

Out since the October international break, Silva has finally returned to fitness, though he's only on the bench Saturday because of the long layoff. Yaya Toure will slot into the No. 10 role Saturday with Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne on the wings.
