Edinson Cavani tipped to make Manchester United debut against Chelsea

It’s going to be intriguing to see how 33-year-old Edinson Cavani will adapt in the Premier League.

The Uruguayan is yet to play for Manchester United but could feature against Chelsea this weekend, potentially coming face-to-face with his ex-PSG teammate Thiago Silva.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that he his new striker will be available for the game, as per The Times, although it would be a surprise if he was to be thrown in from the start.

However, Anthony Martial is suspended for the match and the manager is being asked to pick a starting line-up without his main goal threat.

Cavani probably isn’t fully match fit so maybe Mason Greenwood will get the nod against Frank Lampard’s side. Solskjaer made a point of supporting the youngster when asked about reports highlighting his behaviour off the pitch.

Chelsea are conceding a lot of goals and look vulnerable when defending set pieces, so that could give Cavani a chance to open his account in a Red shirt.

I can’t wait to see our new number 7 get started!
