Manchester United give Edinson Cavani injury update after Man City omission

Date:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Edinson Cavani has been forced out of the Manchester derby after picking up an injury after United’s return from Italy.

The Uruguayan played 21 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Atalanta but is now not available to face Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Cavani was replaced by Marcus Rashford in the starting line-up against Atalanta, but Rashford has only passed a fitness test on Saturday morning to be on the bench.

“We’ve had a couple of issues since Italy, Edi has been one of them, Marcus was only cleared this morning, luckily he can be on the bench and hopefully if he needs to he can come on,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“He’s [Greenwood] been one of the big pluses this season, he’s grown and matured and it’s a good chance for him.”

There is better news on Victor Lindelof, who is fit to return after picking up an injury in training on Monday. He comes into a back three alongside Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly.

There are three changes in total from the game against Atalanta, with Fred replacing the suspended Paul Pogba.
