Edinson Cavani chasing payback against PSG

  Edinson Cavani chasing payback against PSG To appreciate Edinson Cavani's desire to make his Man United debut at Parc des Princes on Tuesday, look no further than an image PSG posted to celebrate their 50th birthday in August. All the club’s favourite players were on there bar one. Cavani. The man nicknamed El Matador. PSG’s all-time top goalscorer.It was a petty act and one that says much about the manner of Cavani’s departure from the French capital over a contract dispute. It drew fierce criticism from the fans who adore him and did not escape the notice of the player.

Edinson Cavani is determined to become a fearsome goalscorer in his own right at Manchester United, but the experienced Uruguayan is prepared to play his part in aiding the development of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood . Chris Burton.

Or Rashford could start in the middle with Greenwood and one of Juan Mata and Daniel James on the wing. This formation would again allow Rashford and Greenwood to play in their strongest central role up front. Man Utd welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Sunday November 1, with kick-off at 4.30pm.

If Arsenal do not beat Manchester United on Sunday, they will have gone 30 league games without winning away against a Big Six side.

Looking at their results this season, you could accuse Mikel Arteta's team of being flat-track bullies. They beat Fulham, Sheffield United and West Ham but lost to Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester.

This is a big opportunity for Arteta. It is time Arsenal showed their ambitions.

With attackers like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka and Willian, you would expect them to be peppering opponents' goals with efforts. But we have not seen that.

Aubameyang signed his new contract on September 15 and has not scored in the league since.

On Sunday he might find himself up against Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been outstanding of late.

There are countless right backs vying for a spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the Euros — including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker — but Wan-Bissaka is the best at defending one-on-one situations.

Neymar could not get past him for PSG last week, and he was excellent against RB Leipzig, too. Arteta could move Aubameyang to the right if the 31-year-old is having no joy on the left, and that is where United seem vulnerable.

Giggs thinks Cavani can have a similar impact to Fernandes at Man Utd

  Giggs thinks Cavani can have a similar impact to Fernandes at Man Utd Cavani scored the winner as Giggs suffered his first defeat as Wales manager and could play some part against Chelsea on Saturday with Anthony Martial still banned for two more games.The 33-year-old last played in March and was in quarantine following his arrival in the UK, meaning he missed Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle United and was not deemed ready to face former club Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday after only training with the team for the first time on Monday.

I really like rashford as well but if have to choose between them i will get fernandes. At the moment there is no direct replacement for Rashford . Igahlo is below par, and Martial is still serving EPL suspension, while Greenwood has fallen Also, Cavani is ready and already played against Chelsea.

Interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, speaks in a post-match press conference after Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 away. As his side continue great form, since his arrival, Solskjaer praises striker, Marcus Rashford for his goal.

Alex Telles has tested positive for Covid so will not play and Luke Shaw is not convincing at times and could be targeted.

Manchester United's BAM attack of Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford seems their best combination.

Solskjaer's rotation has worked well these past few matches. But when those three were together on the pitch against Leipzig on Wednesday, United's game went up a level.

Fernandes excels at the tip of the diamond behind those split strikers. His first-time through ball for the first of Rashford's three goals was evidence of his ability to see the bigger picture. But Martial is not available on Sunday, so if Solskjaer sticks with his 4-1-2-1-2 set-up he has a choice to make between Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani alongside Rashford.

Cavani will bring passion to Man Utd, says Fred

  Cavani will bring passion to Man Utd, says Fred Manchester United's new signings Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani, who could make his debut against Chelsea, have already impressed Fred.Cavani joined the Red Devils on a free transfer on deadline day, having left Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expired in June.

Despite singling out Rashford for special praise, Wenger' s magnanimity did not extend to the rest of the United line-up, with the Gunners boss refuting the suggestion that his team had been beaten by a team bursting with youth and inexperience. Wenger added: 'Let' s not go overboard - they still had a few

I'm sure when putting pen to paper, Cavani received assurances that he would not merely be a substitute for United, like Odion Ighalo has become.

Someone of Cavani's stature surely would not sign up to warm the bench. But Greenwood and Rashford as two willing runners could work well against an Arsenal back line which will be missing a key figure in David Luiz.

Arteta has shown he is prepared to switch between a back three and four. But his defence was exposed against Leicester last weekend when Luiz was replaced by Shkodran Mustafi, with Jamie Vardy left unmarked to head home the winner.

There can be no falling asleep on the job on Sunday, otherwise someone like Rashford can make you pay. Just ask the Government…

KEOWN TALKS TACTICS: Why have Ole's United stopped crossing the ball? .
MARTIN KEOWN: When Manchester United were at their brilliant best and winning trophy after trophy, they would attack at all costs, use the wings and get balls into the box. That was in their DNA. But it’s been seven years since United last sat top of the Premier League pile and, in that time, they have fallen right down the rankings for crosses. Whereas once they would routinely rank first or second under Sir Alex Ferguson — including in 2012-13, the last time United were crowned champions — they now sit 18th.It goes against tradition.
