Edinson Cavani won’t be kept quiet for too long.
The Manchester United striker hasn’t seen much of the ball in the early exchanges against Everton at Old Trafford but provided a decisive impact midway through the first-half.
Cavani headed home after deceiving Everton’s two central defenders with superb movement in the box.
But the goal would not have been possible without a stunning delivery from Marcus Rashford.
Rashford is often criticised for his final ball but delivered a glorious cross that gave Cavani the perfect chance to score.
It’s the Uruguayan frontman’s third goal against the Toffees in as many games this season and United have a crucial advantage.
