Marco Silva hands warning to United ahead of league meeting

Everton boss Marco Silva has handed a warning to Manchester United ahead of the weekend’s Premier League meeting. The Toffees have been in impressive form in their home patch in the past month and Silva believes the team are capable of getting the better of United when they make the Merseyside trip on Sunday.

In a report covered by Sky Sports, Silva said that the Toffees have a great respect for the forthcoming opposition but expects his team to produce a strong performance against them, he said: “Even if we have big respect for Man United, with the quality they have, not just individual quality but as a team also, it’s up us playing at home. I’m 100 per cent sure if we’re at our best level, we’ll be tough for them. I don’t have doubts about that. If we can reach the same level we played the last three home games, it will be really tough for them and it’s something I want, it’s my desire, our desire as a team, to see again at Goodison our team playing at that level.”

The Merseyside outfit recently faced a setback after succumbing to a 2-0 defeat to relegated Fulham on the road. However, their home form has been brilliant of late and they have beaten the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal while getting a valuable point against title-chasing Liverpool. As such, United can expect no favours from the Toffees and it remains to be seen whether United can step up their game when it matters the most.

The Red Devils are currently two points behind the top four of the Premier League and they surely can’t expect a slip-up against the Toffees, considering the games against Manchester City and Chelsea to follow. United are winless in the past four away matches in all competitions, and they need to end the rut to enhance their Champions League hopes for next season.
