City had won eight matches in a row before that defeat against Newcastle but Silva said there were areas in need of improvement despite the winning run.
“We know we have to improve even though we have some fantastic performances,” he said. “Sometimes we don’t play as well as we want to. We have to improve that, to see which mistakes we are making.
“The atmosphere in the dressing room is fantastic, everybody is trying to help each other to improve and to try to help the team-mate next to you so we just want to be the better players game by game, to try to be a better team and to try win some titles at the end of the season.”
Meanwhile, City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has said that Liverpool’s lighter fixture load could give them a major advantage over Guardiola’s side, who are still in the hunt for four trophies.
