This weekend’s Barclays premier league entertains a rivalry between Liverpool Fc vs Manchester united. Jose Mourinho’s men visit Liverpool on Saturday looking to continue their fine start to the season, which has seen United win six of their opening seven Premier League games.
Silvestre, who won five league titles and a Champions League with United, has told his former club to expect a huge test against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
“You feel like you’re going to hell. You are not welcome and you can feel the hate for sure,” he told 888sport.
“It’s a hostile environment and it’s a good occasion to see how you react in adversity. It’s the best place to win games.”
While United are second in the table, Liverpool sit seventh following just three wins in seven league games.
“Over the course of the 90 minutes you would expect them to make some chances because they are talented but there is not one goal-machine from Salah, Firmino, Mane or Coutinho.
“They are missing that clinical player because at the end of the day it is this one you have to be worried about, the one you expect to finish 20-25 times a season.
“Liverpool doesn’t have one yet. United are going to be tested but I think they can control these guys.”
Emre Can has urged Liverpool’s players to go in “hard” on their Manchester United counterparts when the two rivals meet on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have not won since September 23, when they defeated Leicester City 3-2, and sit seventh in the Premier League table.
Can, subsequently, has called for the Reds to be tough in the tackle as they aim to put a dent in United’s title bid.
Ofcourse the rivalry is not going to be the same as it was during the time of Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and the rest. Hopefully this first ecounter will be mind blowing and thrilling.
