Silva has explained why Everton's display against City can be the kick-start to a positive run.
“Manchester City were better than us until the first goal but we showed a reaction and the desire to challenge them to try to get a different result," Silva told evertontv.
“The reaction was really good, we equalised and the game was more balanced.
“Our players showed that desire to react and challenge them.
“Then the second half was better.
“We spoke at half-time about being more aggressive in our organisation and in the challenge.
“The reaction after City scored the free-kick was very good again and we had two big chances.
“We have to keep the attitude and desire we showed in the second half.
“In this way, we will score and get results in the next games. From good results confidence will come and everything will be different."
