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.

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.

Silva, who has been ruled out of Saturday's Premier League match against Southampton, is expected to be fit to face Roma in the Champions League on Dec. 10, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Given the timeline given, and the condensed Premier League schedule, Silva will miss matches against Sunderland on Dec. 3 and Everton on Dec. 6 before the crucial match against the Serie A side, though there remains a chance he could face the Toffees.

Silva has been ruled out for Manchester City's Premier League match against Southampton on Sunday.

Silva will not play in Manchester City's Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday because of a knee injury, the Manchester Evening News reports.
