Manchester City keeper Ederson will miss Sunday's Premier League match against leaders Liverpool due to a muscle injury with Claudio Bravo set to replace him in goal, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday.
The unbeaten league-leading Reds needed an 87th-minute header from Andy Robertson and an injury-time victor from Sadio Mane to defeat Aston Villa 2-1 last time out and preserve a six-point cushion over City.
Silva picked up an injury in City's impressive comeback win over Southampton last weekend.
That in turn rules him out of the match against Liverpool, but Kopites believe Guardiola is just trying to play some mind games.

"I love it", said Guardiola.
Rarely does a fixture, especially one played as early in the season, justify the hype but such is the quality and reliability of Liverpool and City, the consequences of the result are hard to play down. We are going to try to follow the plan in this game. "Well, what happens if we win?"
Guardiola says City have to travel with belief or they have no chance of overcoming a side that have dropped just two points in the Premier League all season.
Victory then would have shot them 10 points clear. They did win the reverse fixture in January, cutting the lead at the top of the table to four points, going on to win the title. The way they play they demand incredible attention in all the details for 95 minutes. Anfield is the only place he has been to at least three times and not won. You see the team, what is the weak point?

"That's why we're involved in this business, to be involved in this kind of experience, in these stadiums".
While Guardiola is confident, it would be understandable if his senior players were less optimistic.
It has undoubtedly added an intriguing sub-plot ahead of one of the most eagerly awaited Premier League matches in recent memory as Liverpool seek to significantly boost their bid to end a near 30-year wait for top-flight glory.
