Everton will play against Manchester City tonight, and the only way the team can get a win is by playing a perfect match.
Everton is currently in the ninth position of the English Premier League table with 33 points.
They are 26 points behind second-place Manchester City.
And tonight they will face off in Matchday 26 of the EPL.
“To be ready to achieve a good result and win against Manchester City, you have to give almost the perfect performance,” Marco Silva told the club’s official website.
“With no mistakes, always fully focussed, a fantastic attitude and ready to fight and achieve a good result.”
“They are having more than 70 percent possession against all the teams – so you have to be solid and compact,” he added.
“They will play close to our box a lot, even if we do not want that, so we have to be focussed and strong and put the right aggressiveness on the pitch.”
“Then when you have the ball, you have to play with ambition, with one aim in your mind, to try to create some damage to them and create the chances to try to score,” Silva commented.
“When we have the ball and the opportunity to make the offensive transition or counter-attack, we have to be able to do it fast, to be assertive and create chances to score.”
“It is something we have spoken about,” he continued.
“When Andre has played with different players by his side, he was more able to go in the other [attacking] zones.”
“We played with one positional [holding] midfielder in the past two games and Andre took this responsibility,” he said.
“When he plays with a different profile of player behind him, he can get in different [more advanced] positions.”
