Silva wants players to step up against top six opponents

Silva wants players to step up against top six opponents Marco Silva has insisted that Everton’s players must step up and show courage as they look to turn around their terrible away record at ‘top six’ clubs. The Toffees have failed to adequately compete against the Premier League’s ‘top six’ away from home over the years, with the most recent win coming at Old Trafford in December 2013. Although the records would have United as the firm favourites, Everton are on a positive winning streak, having beaten Fulham, Leicester City and Crystal Palace in their previous three league games. Silva intends to encourage his players to be on the front foot against United, if they wish to live up to their ambitions of returning to European competition. Talking ahead of Sunday’s fixture, Silva said: “To be able to win one game at Old Trafford or at one of the other strong sides in the country you have to be strong as a squad.” “You have to have the personality and the character to not fear and to be yourselves.

David Silva hopes Manchester City can give their fans the chance "to wind up the red half" with a win over United in the derby on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's Premier League leaders will go into the clash as favourites against a United side sitting seventh but beginning to rediscover their best form.

Silva, who has three goals and two assists in the league this season, said table position was irrelevant in a derby, and he wants City to deliver for their supporters.

"Every derby match is different, just like every season is different. You can see that regardless of what position either side is in the table," he told a news conference.

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho: "It means the whole world to me to play in the Manchester derby and get the winning goal I’ m really happy for my team because they worked very hard and we got the Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera: "It is disappointing for us. We are now not happy.

"You saw what happened when they came to our place last season, and we went there [Old Trafford] and won as well.

"I think league position has nothing to do with it, it's just a game by game thing really.

"Obviously it means a huge amount. We know the importance of the derby and for the people who have been at the game or fans of either club, and in particular City fans. It's a great chance the next day when you go into work or see your mates on the street, it's a chance, if you've won, to wind up the red half a little bit."

City are two points clear of Chelsea atop the table and nine better off than United ahead of the derby.
