Manchester United team news: Cavani should be available v Everton, centre-back ruled out

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only one major injury doubt ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Manchester United Everton at Old Trafford.

It looks like United will be without Eric Bailly, which means we should see Harry Maguire partnered by Victor Lindelof as centre-back.

There is some good news with Edinson Cavani’s availability. The striker sustained an ankle injury on Tuesday night in the 9-0 thrashing against Southampton.

“Edinson should be available, yeah, definitely, he got a bad ankle knock, Eric (Bailly) is a doubt, apart from that everyone’s raring to go,” Solskjaer told reporters, as per Manchester Evening News.

The United players certainly enjoyed themselves during the week, but for those left out – an example being Paul Pogba – it would have been a test of patience. An attacking player like Pogba wants to be part of performances like that, so hopefully he will be ready to go and contribute to another win at Old Trafford.

United know they need to show more consistency at home in the second half of the season if they are to compete for the Premier League title.

Solskjaer was asked if home form was key to this season being successful. He added: “Consistency of course is vital, done really well away from home, bounced back after Sheffield United defeat, ready to kick on, move on, get momentum. We play every two or four days but if we get the consistency and morale and confidence up who knows.”

I highly doubt confidence will be an issue tomorrow night. It can’t after a 9-0 win!
