    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.”

  • Ashley Williams Gives Honest Verdict On Michael Keane’s Season

    Everton defender Ashley Williams is pleased with the consistency shown by Michael Keane over the past few months. The England international joined the Toffees from Burnley for £25m during the 2017 summer transfer window, and had a slow start to his career due to injuries hampering his progress. However, as the season has gone on, the centre-back has found his feet with the Toffees, and he has managed to start eight of the club’s last 10 matches in the Premier League.

    Speaking on the club’s official website, the ex-Swansea City captain spoke fondly about Keane, who he believes to have learnt from his errors earlier in the season, he said: “I thought Michael did really well against a tough Watford front three. I was really disappointed for him and the whole team that we did not get the clean sheet we wanted so much.Michael has done well. He has had a run in the team – he plays for England and is obviously a top-quality player. I am happy he is doing well.”
