Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that other strikers at the club can learn pretty much from the experienced Edinson Cavani.
Paul Pogba has stolen the headlines with his sublime performances in recent games. At Craven Cottage, Pogba pulled a spectacular winner for his team, but the foundations for the comeback were laid by Cavani after United had gone down by one goal. Cavani scored from close range to record his fourth goal away from home.
Cavani was fast to react to Alphonse Areola’s howler to draw United level following Lookman’s early strike for Fulham. After the game, Solskjaer was full of the veteran striker, hoping that he continues to inspire his teammates.
After the match, Solskjaer said that “Cavani is a centre-forward you want in the box, his movement is incredible,” before adding that, “it’s for everyone to learn from.
Solskjaer’s sentiments are backed by Opta’s findings, which show that; Edinson Cavani is the first Man United player to score each of their first four Premier League goals for the club in away matches.
“I almost get frustrated at times when he goes wide to put crosses in because he’s the one you want in there. Sometimes I have to ask him to do less running.
“His movement is spot on and he’s the type of centre-forward we’ve been looking for, he compliments Marcus (Rashford) and Mason (Greenwood) and Anthony (Martial) really well.” Manchester United seem to have found a mature striker to fill the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
