Edinson Cavani may be the subject of an investigation from the Football Association after allegedly using a racially offensive term in a social media post.

The Manchester United striker came off the bench to fire his side to a 3-2 win against Southampton on Sunday.

The Red Devils were 2-0 down when the Uruguay international came off the bench for the second half and set up Bruno Fernandes to pull one back before heading in two of his own to seal the three points deep in stoppage time.

The 33-year-old shared some of the positive messages he received from fans in the wake of the victory and responded to one post with the message "Gracias n******".

The term Cavani used is the same Uruguay co-star Luis Suarez is said to have used during his altercation with Patrice Evra in October 2011, which resulted in the former Liverpool star being fined £40,000 and banned for eight matches.

The FA and United have not commented on the issue as of yet.

Cavani joined the Old Trafford side in a free transfer in October and has scored three goals in five substitute appearances in the Premier League.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for the striker after his impact in Sunday's game and has been impressed by his movement off the ball.

“He is one of the best because of his experience and qualities, that movement," Solskjaer said.

No home wins: Man Utd form must improve fast to ease pressure on Solskjaer

  No home wins: Man Utd form must improve fast to ease pressure on Solskjaer There have been four fruitless attempts to win at Old Trafford so far this season and, with West Brom visiting, that has got to get betterIt had been a real backs-against-the-wall, dogged victory against Everton; they had to come from behind and fought for the badge and for the manager after a disappointing result in the Champions League midweek against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani deletes a social media post which contained a Spanish phrase that is offensive in some contexts. Edinson Cavani came on as a half-time substitute in the 3-2 Premier League victory at Southampton on Sunday, setting up one goal and scoring twice.

Edinson Cavani 's deadline-day arrival at Old Trafford was widely questioned, but against Cavani 's pedigree cannot be questioned after scoring 341 goals in 556 club matches , including a record The amount of criticism Man United and the players get is relentless, and his experience with not letting it

"He is one of the best movers you can see. He can peel off the shoulder, he can get in front of you, he can pin you.

"He wants to be in between the two posts, which I love. I love a centre-forward who gets in there. It might hurt sometimes but, when you’re there and you get the ball there, you've gambled and the ball’s been delivered, it's a goal. Two goals!”

United captain Harry Maguire went as far as to hail him as an example for other strikers.

"He has been without a club for a few months so he is coming in and catching up. He is a great professional, he is great to have around the place, he is great in the dressing room and I think you saw today what he brings to the club," he said.

"His movement when the ball is wide is to a level that not many strikers can reach. He is always on the move, always getting across people and that’s why he has always scored goals. So if there are any strikers out here wanting to learn and watch, I am sure they are studying his movement and what he has done in his career."
