But the Portuguese international admits the Reds deserve to be crowned Premier League champions this season.
Silva was among the nominees for the PFA Player of the Year title last season to miss Reds defenseman Virgil van Dijk, while the season before Mohamed Salah won the honor – despite the fact that City won the title twice.
City wingers Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane have won the PFA Young Player of the Year award in the past two years, but Silva is confused. Pep Guardiola’s team has not been better recognized.
“I hope it’s not a bad example and that people don’t take it the wrong way,” said Silva. “But I’m still thinking about the last three seasons, Man City and Liverpool.
“Three seasons ago we won the league and they were 30 points behind. Kevin De Bruyne, an incredible season, Mo Salah, scores a lot of goals.
“He is a great player and I admire him very much, and they give the award to Mo Salah.

“The next season, very close. Raheem Sterling was on the run with van Dijk, they give the prize to van Dijk. This season again, Kevin de Bruyne, another incredible season.
“We are late, but because Liverpool is champion, probably one of them wins the prize again.
“I think of David Silva, Sergio Aguero has never won the PFA Player of the Year title. I think the individual rewards are very relative. “
De Bruyne and Liverpool duo Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane are among the first to win the PFA Player of the Year this season.
The Premier League season has been suspended since March 13 due to the coronavirus epidemic, with clubs pledging to resume the campaign when it’s safe.
And Silva, speaking to Bleacher Report, accepts that the Reds deserve their potential title victory, with Jurgen Klopp’s team 25 points ahead of City at the top and needing only to win two of their nine games remaining to win a first championship since 1990.
“Of course they do,” he said. ” Certainly. I think it’s a very sad situation, and probably now even if they win it, they won’t enjoy it as much as they should, as they deserve.
“They will not be able to celebrate with their fans, they will not be able to play with a crowd. It will be difficult to play in the next two or three months with a crowd.
“But they certainly deserve this title, yes. “
