When quizzed about whether Edinson Cavani will be available for Man United’s game against West Ham United at the weekend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Edinson hopefully will start training with us after the weekend, maybe Monday, so maybe involved on Wednesday (Carabao Cup game against West Ham).
“He had a fantastic season last season, the impact he made when he got his fitness, he struggled with niggly injuries early on. We feel that to get the best out of him this season we need to get him 100% fit and not rush him.
“We’ve got a strong squad that will cope with having to let players heal and not risk any further injuries. I see Edinson having a massive impact, he’s that type of personality and player. He can’t wait to play and he’s working really hard to get back on the pitch.”
The Red Devils are also likely to miss Scott McTominay & Dean Henderson as they’re still not fully match fit after recovering from respective issues.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will face a challenging test against an unbeaten West Ham side on Sunday and have to play their best football in order to get another win on the road in the Premier League.
