That is the view of former Manchester United and France defender Mikael Silvestre.

Liverpool host the Red Devils in the first Premier League game of the weekend (12.30PM).

Mourinho’s first league game at Anfield last season ended 0-0, with the Portuguese adopting his usual tactics away from home at his direct rivals.

But having won six of their first seven league games this term, sitting level on points with Manchester City at the top, Silvestre cannot see his old side sitting back tomorrow.

“The goals we flowing so it looks like the team balance and consistency is better than last season,” he told talkSPORT.

“So we could see maybe a Manchester United side more open, willing to score goals, than at Anfield last season.”

Silvestre also cannot see Liverpool changing their style and is expecting to see plenty of goals.

“For Liverpool it’s definitely a tricky game but I don’t see them parking the bus or trying to avoid defeat at home with their fans behind them,” he added.

“They’re going to play the same style and go for the three points. 

“I can see goals in this game and for United they can do a good job over there. 

“The race is tight with City, you can’t afford to lose points.”

City host Stoke at the Etihad later in the day (3pm).
