Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that striker Edinson Cavani has been ruled out of Sunday’s Manchester derby through injury.
United are set to take-on arch-rivals City in what is one of the season’s highlight fixtures.
However, despite naming a strong starting 11, fans have been quick to question why star-striker Cavani has not been awarded a place in the squad.
Speaking ahead of the tense clash, Solskjaer has revealed that his experienced South American recently picked up an injury during a training session.
It is not yet known the extent of Cavani’s injury and when fans can expect him to return but make no mistake, this is a big opportunity for Anthony Martial to win pockets of fans’ hearts back.
