Everton boss Marco Silva says that if his side can reach the level of performance from the last three home games then it will be tough for Manchester United on Sunday.
The visitors come knowing that defeat would match a 23 year old losing record, and Everton are currently favourites to win the match with odds of 21/10.
The Blues haven’t been without their own issues with form of late, however, with the trip to Fulham last week proving how fragile confidence is within the club, although at home there has been something of a renaissance having beaten both Chelsea and Arsenal at Goodison Park recently.
Now Silva wants to add the scalp of another of the so-called “big six” to his list and do what was last achieved under Roberto Martinez by beating United.
Silva said: ‘We have big respect for Manchester United, but if we can reach the level we have reached in our last three home games it will be really tough for them.
‘They are different coaches and different formations, because with Solskjaer they are changing many times, and not just playing with one system or one formation.
‘They have quality players and they can play with six or seven different players in the attack line.
‘They have shown us why they have high quality, but I am 100 per cent sure we can make it tough for them.’
