Silva took a game-high 10 shots and scored in the 77th minute of Manchester City's 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

West Brom went down to 10 men just 90 seconds into the match, allowing City to just pepper backup keeper Boaz Myhill with shots. Silva now has 11 goals this season, more than both of the last two seasons combined.

February 24, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva assisted on Sergio Aguero's 69th-minute goal during Manchester City's 2-1 Champions League loss to Barcelona on Tuesday.

Silva has been dominant of late, scoring two goals and assisting on two others in his last two matches. While he failed to register a shot against Barca, he was still a highly-impactful player and will look to keep his form Sunday at Anfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva had two goals and an assist during Manchester City's 5-0 rout of Newcastle on Saturday.

Despite the return of Yaya Toure to the City midfield, Silva was absolutely dominant against Newcastle, scoring on both of his shot attempts to increase his goal total to nine this season. Up next is a huge trip to Anfield on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva scored in the 45th minute of Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Silva's peripheral stats weren't great, as he finished with just one key pass, one shot on target and one successful dribble, and his goal was a simple poke to adjust a Sergio Aguero strike. Nevertheless, he netted for the seventh time this season, and first since Dec. 28 against Burnley. Up next is a very promising home matchup against Hull City next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva scored his fourth goal in the last three games during Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Burnley on Sunday.

Silva continues to play very well for City, though Sunday's draw was especially tough to swallow after Chelsea also only grabbed a point earlier in the day. Silva has been playing quite a bit recently, so he could be rested for the New Year's Day tie with Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva took four shots and scored two goals during Manchester City's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Playing without the injured trio of Sergio Aguero (knee), Stevan Jovetic (hamstring) and Edin Dzeko (calf), Silva picked up the slack in the attack, scoring for the first time since Oct. 25 against West Ham. As long as he's fit, which he is right now, Silva is arguably one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, and he'll look to continue his excellent play on Boxing Day at West Brom.

Silva (knee) returned to training this week, ESPN FC reports.

Silva has been sidelined since October with the injury, but return will come at a great time for City, who will be without striker Sergio Aguero for at least six weeks. Silva is iffy for Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma, but he may be able to get back Saturday against Leicester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Silva (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Everton, but he may be fit to face Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Silva continues to be a vital part of the Man City attack, though he's underproduced in traditional fantasy formats with only two goals and two assists in nine appearances this season. He has not played since facing Newcastle in the Capital One Cup back on Oct. 29, but his return will surely be a huge boost to a City side that will also be without Stevan Jovetic (knock) on Saturday.
