Silva has been nominated for his stunning left footed free-kick which opened the scoring in our 2-1 Premier League win against Bournemouth at the Etihad.
El Mago fired home from more than 20 yards with an inch perfect strike which beat Cherries’ keeper Aaron Ramsdale and cannoned in off the underside of the crossbar.
De Bruyne meanwhile is short-listed for the first of two goals against Norwich in our 5-0 win against the Canaries.
Picking the ball up just outside the penalty area, the Belgian skipped inside a defender before unleashing a stunning curling shot into the top-right corner of the goal.
The other July nominees are Anthony Martial of Manchester United; Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace); Danny Welbeck (Watford); Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal); Raul Jimenez (Wolves) and Brighton’s Yves Bissouma
The winner will be announced at 1pm on Wednesday, August 5th.
