Will Edinson Cavani play against Crystal Palace: Possible Man Utd starting line up against the Eagles


  • Edinson Cavani is in line to make his much-awaited return from injury against Crystal Palace on Wednesday
  • The Manchester United and Uruguay forward hasn’t featured for the Red Devils since the middle of February
  • A muscle injury has kept the 34-year-old striker out of the Red Devils’ last four games in all competitions

Manchester United are expecting Edinson Cavani to return from injury for the side’s Wednesday night’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, per Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The 34-year-old Uruguay international hasn’t featured for the Red Devils since sustaining a muscle injury after his side’s 1-1 draw with West Brom on Valentine’s Day.

He has missed his side’s last four games in all competitions, two of which the Red Devils won and the other two they draw at Chelsea and against Real Sociedad in the Europa League.

Cavani has proved to be a successful signing for the Red Devils since arriving on a free transfer in the summer, scoring 6 goals in only 8 starts for the Old Trafford outfit.

 

Cavani injury update: Has he resumed training?

Speaking ahead of his side’s Wednesday’s trip to Selhurst Park, Solskjaer revealed that the Uruguayan had resumed training with the rest of the Man Utd squad last week. However, it is only this week that he has been put through his paces.

The 34-year-old was out of action after suffering a muscle injury during training ahead of United’s 4-0 Europa League victory over Real Sociedad. He subsequently missed his side’s next four games against Real Sociedad (twice), Newcastle United and Chelsea.

 

How Man Utd could line up against Crystal Palace

Despite the fact that Cavani has resumed training, Wednesday’s clash with the Eagles might come too soon for the Uruguayan to be included in the starting XI. That should give Anthony Martial the chance to lead the line and an opportunity to end his six-game barren streak in front of goal.

Possible Man Utd line up against Crystal Palace: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
