Sergio Aguero doubled the lead just a few minutes after the game restarted in the second half and Fabian Delph scored Manchester City's third goal just after the hour mark to send the Citizens cruising towards a comfortable home win.
The Tigers have turned the KCOM Stadium into a fortress since Silva's appointment, going unbeaten with five wins out of six.
It's widely expected that City will spend significantly this summer to further strengthen their squad and ensure that Guardiola has the personnel and group in place to fully implement his ideas and style of play.
The Sky Blues are determined to turn their recent poor form around plus they might involve some happiness given the gulf in class between themselves and a travelsick Hull City. They've gone W1-D2-L12 on the road this term, failing to score in 10 of 13 winless matches recently, of which 12 were defeats.
Not so silent night: Dallas emergency siren system hacked
There are 156 outdoor warning sirens in the city of Dallas , WFAA reported, but it was unclear how many of them malfunctioned. The city has asked for assistance from the Federal Communications Commission in determining who was behind the hack.
Sergio Aguero made it 2-0 shortly after halftime following a jinking run by Raheem Sterling, his 10th goal in his last 10 appearances for City. Substitutes: Nolito (for Sane, 66) 6, Kelechi Iheanacho (for Silva, 72) 6, Fernando (for Toure, 74) 6. Hull nearly level straight away as Evandro's flick from a Grosicky cross finds Niasse six yards out but he deflects the ball straight at Bravo.
City ended a run of four EPL games without victory in style at Etihad Stadium. Sterling looks to be contained on the edge of the box but he drops the shoulder and goes past three Hull defenders and crossing low for Aguero to finish.
Hull managed to contain City early on but came unstuck in the 31st minute when makeshift right back Jesus Navas' cross evaded Aguero, but was poked into his own net by Elmohamady under pressure from Leroy Sane at the back post. Hull recycle the ball from a corner and Maloney's cutback is prodded goalwards by Ranocchia and beyond Bravo, who really should have saved that. The Foxes have already tasted victory at Goodison Park this season, in the FA Cup, when the team was struggling under Claudio Ranieri, and won there last season so it is an entirely realistic prospect.
Pep Guardiola has promised that he will "definitely" do better next season but insists he has "enjoyed" his first year in charge of Manchester City. "Now comes good games to change the situation away as well".
