Chelsea's Kurt Zouma hails new centre back partner Thiago Silva

  Chelsea's Kurt Zouma hails new centre back partner Thiago Silva The 36-year-old Brazilian defender put pen to paper on a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge after becoming a free agent following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain. The Blues were in need of defensive reinforcements this summer after conceding 54 goals in the Premier League last season - the highest amount out of the sides that finished in the top 10.

Bernardo Silva is let off with just a one-match ban over his racially-offensive tweet to Man City team-mate Benjamin Mendy - and the club WON'T appeal. Silva and City had been left in limbo following the player' s initial charge in September and the champions have been left disappointed with the action

Although City looked dominant for periods against Villa and Sunderland, and perhaps deserved a Pellegrini knows this must be addressed - and quickly - if his dreams of a Premier League title are to become reality. Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Silva have all been spared on occasion this season.

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva has called for changes to be made after the club's disappointing start to the new season .

Pep Guardiola's side are currently 13th in the Premier League after their first five games have produced just two wins.

While they began their latest Champions League campaign with a 3-1 win against Porto last week, City were held to a 1-1 draw with West Ham in the league on Saturday as their stuttering start continued.

Silva is used to much higher standards at the Etihad and believes City must mix things up if they are to remain competitive this season.

"The truth is that we haven't started the season well at all, we have to do a lot better than two Premier League games won out of five," Silva told L'Equipe .

Manchester City ' s Bernardo Silva has been reported to the English Football Association (FA) for posting an alleged racist tweet, according to anti-discrimination charity Kick it Out.

"It's true that we had a lot of injuries, and players who get injured again and again. But that can't be an excuse with the team we have.

"I don't have a good explanation, we have to talk among ourselves in the team, with the coach, because if we want to win a title this season, something must be changed.

"We have the impression of a team that lacks punch, taking offensive responsibilities. All the teams know how to play. And we find ourselves against teams that do not want the ball, they are only waiting for the counter. At the start of the season, we didn't manage to be dangerous, to create a lot of chances, or to be effective."

Silva himself is yet to score or claim an assist across five appearances this season, with Guardiola recently backing the Portugal international to rediscover his best form .

There is disquiet in the squad about how many changes Guardiola

The 26-year-old concedes his performances have dipped over the past year but he is ready to step up whether his side needs him moving forward.

"It turned out that it was not a very good season for us, and neither for me personally. We have a very complete squad, with a lot of world-class players and competition," Silva said.

"On the right, I have Riyad [Mahrez] and Ferran Torres, even Raheem Sterling. In the middle, I had David Silva, [Ilkay] Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne. But of course I have to do better this season.

"I'm not a fast player, I can't be an eccentric like Raheem Sterling or like Leroy Sane was. But I can play on the side. The last few seasons I've played right, middle, left, striker, I can play anywhere actually."
