Silva pulled the strings in midfield as City hit five past the Gunners defence.
"It was a great game. The most important thing is that we won and that we are now closer to the top of table," he told City's website.
"We didn't expect to score six goals. They are a great team, but we played very well and took our chances. At home we are doing very well.
"I feel good but I'm not 100%. I'm getting better each day and hope I can continue playing like this and keep scoring goals."
