Ex-Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre has admitted that playing at Anfield is like ' going to hell ' because of the hostile atmosphere created by the vociferous home fans, but believes his former has no reason to fear the current Reds team ahead of this weekend's huge clash.

"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.

Silvestre believes United can control the hosts' leading attackers – Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino – with Sadio Mane sidelined due to a hamstring injury.

"They are good players but hardly world class yet," he said.

"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."
