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.

Silva, who injured his ankle in the Manchester derby on Tuesday, is in the squad list for Saturday's match at Arsenal, ESPN FC reports.

There is no guarantee that Silva will be in the starting XI, but with such a huge fixture that could push Arsenal out of the title race altogether, he may be asked to tough it out.

Silva picked up an ankle injury during the Manchester derby on Tuesday and could miss Saturday's match at Arsenal, the Daily Mirror reports.

Silva played all 90 minutes of the derby but said he felt pain in his ankle immediately after the game. He is reportedly undergoing intensive treatment to ensure he is ready, although he'll likely have to pass a late fitness test in order to face the Gunners.

Silva had a goal and an assist during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

City seemingly had their backs to the walls after Vincent Kompany was sent off in the 10th minute, but Silva scored four minutes later on a wonderful curling strike to settle the Citizens down. He added an assist on Edin Dzeko's 90th minute goal to clinch a very solid fantasy performance. Silva is also a very inviting gameweek 31 play, with Manchester City scheduled to face Fulham at home and Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Silva recorded an assist during Wednesday's 5-1 rout of Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Silva controlled much of the match for City, but unfortunately only ended up with a single assist for fantasy owners. He did his the woodwork once, with the bounce eventually leading to an Edin Dzeko goal. Silva remains an elite fantasy option, although he's got a tough matchup in gameweek 24 against Chelsea.
