City will face Leicester City in the Third Round.
Silva told the club's website: "I can't wait to play in the FA Cup because it's such a famous competition around the world. I like the challenge of knock-out football, and with Leicester being at home they will be motivated to spring a surprise on us.
"Every team wants to beat us, no matter what competition it is, and this will be no different. We have an important few weeks before that but I will be really looking forward to it."
