Edinson Cavani is set to be available to play against Everton tomorrow evening, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.
Manchester United’s 9-0 victory over Southampton was probably our highlight of the season thus far. However, it did come at a cost – or so we thought…
After the game, we’d learn that Edinson Cavani had suffered from an injury, which is why the Uruguayan had to be substituted at half-time.
Here at Old Trafford Faithful, we thought Cavani was pretty likely to miss the Red Devils’ home game against Everton tomorrow. After all, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wouldn’t risk his in-form striker in the middle of a title race, would he…?
Well, good news. Solskjaer has confirmed that the key star is fit to take on The Toffees tomorrow night. He’s ‘definitely’ ready to go after suffering a ‘bad’ knock to his ankle.
Check out what Solskjaer had to say when asked about whether Cavani would be available here:
“Edinson should be available, yeah definitely,” Solskjaer told the media, including ManUtd.com. “He got a bad ankle knock there [against Southampton].”
This feels like another occasion where United have found themselves in a rather fortunate position in regards to injuries. Whatever fitness training they’re doing at Carrington this season, it’s certainly working.
Cavani has been a great asset for this Reds side over the last few months and long may that continue. His movement, work ethic, lethal finishing ability and sheer dedication to the cause can only be described as exemplary.
Credit has to go to Solskjaer, too, for sanctioning this move despite fans questioning the decision and labelling it a panic buy at the time. Now, we’re all left with egg on our face…
Hopefully, Cavani is feeling 100% and ready to start at the Theatre of Dreams tomorrow. We’re definitely going to need him!
