The 34-year-old joined Sociedad on a free transfer from City this summer. After going in front in the first half from the spot-kick converted by Mikel Oyarzabal, Silva raised the bar in the second half to set up goals for Cristian Portu and Alexander Isak.

The former Spain international has so far played seven matches this season, creating two assists and receiving two yellow cards in the process.
