Silva confident Man City fans now seeing his best
Silva has taken his time to find his feet in the Premier League.
He told City's website: "The Spanish league is quite strong, there are some quite physical sides there as well. On that side of things, it's not too different but where it does vary is the speed of the game.
"Coming off the back of the World Cup, because Spain got to the final I was involved until the very last stages there so I did not have the full pre-season by any means. It has taken me a little longer than I wanted to settle in, but I do feel physically stronger day-by-day and week-by-week . I think that things are starting to work for me, I want to do my bit for the team and continue to be successful so we can all achieve our goals together."
