Just one point has been picked up on the road since Silva took over as Head Coach in January, and the Portuguese knows that has to change if his side is to retain its Premier League status.
“We will have to pick up some away points and this is something the players know, too,” said Silva.
“Every game is important, it doesn’t matter if we are at home or away, we need to take as many points as possible between now and the end of the season.
“Our next game is away and the situation with our away results is something we need to change. We will be doing our best to do this on Saturday.
“Our focus is on our behaviour in the game on Saturday and what we can do in this match.
“Stoke will give us a tough, hard match. They will not be happy with their last few results, but we are just looking at our performance and this is how we will prepare. We have a strategy in our mind and we have been preparing this during this week.
“We have been competing away from home, but the results have not been very good and the only point we have taken was at Manchester United.
“We have a chance to improve this against Stoke, but we can only prove it during the match. We are playing against a good team but we have to think only about our performance and believe it is possible to change the situation because we need to change it.”
