Feeling aggrieved they did not get a penalty for a challenge on Sadio Mane, Klopp said: "United had more penalties in two years than me in five-and-a-half years... but no excuses for tonight."

Solskjaer, without naming Klopp, says the comments from one of his rival managers have led to the officials treating his team differently and hopes it will change as soon as possible.

"We just have to hope that we get what we deserve," said Solskjaer ahead of Saturday's visit of Aston Villa to Old Trafford.

"We should have had three penalties in the last two games. A certain manager last year was starting to worry about us getting penalties last season and after that, it seems like the decisions are more difficult to give.

The 34-year-old striker's only appearance this season came from the bench at Wolves before the international break.

Solskjaer is expecting Cavani, who scored 17 goals in all competitions for United last season, to have a similar impact in his second campaign at Old Trafford.

"He is in the squad tomorrow," added Solskjaer. "He's been training and now he feels ready to contribute.
