Why Edinson Cavani Need To Start More Matches

English premier league contender, Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani finally delivered for his new club after he almost singlehandedly dragged the club from the jaws of defeat to victory.

The Uruguayan came to the Premier League with a big reputation for scoring goals aplenty everywhere he has been since his career started at Danubio in his native Uruguay.

Edison Cavani had not shown his true colors as a consistent goal scorer until the league game with Southampton at the weekend. The player would argue that he has not been given the opportunities needed to shine for his new club.

Edinson Cavani signed a lucrative free transfer deal at Manchester United in the summer on the back of his non-activity for six months.

He had not played competitive football since March due to the suspension of the French football league last season. The top five European leagues had to suspend football in March due to Coronavirus.

All the top five leagues resumed football except France. This decision was greeted with mixed reactions as Edison Cavani and PSG were restricted to matches in the Champions League, the French Cup final and the French League Cup final upon the resumption of football. By that time, Edinson Cavani was a free agent as his PSG contract had ended.

The ex-Palermo and Napoli attacker was not involved as PSG went close to winning the Champions League title upon the resumption of European football in August.

PSG got to the final of the competition before losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich courtesy the second half strike from former player Kingsley Coman.

Edinson Cavani has had to play catchup on the fitness front upon signing for Manchester United at the start of this season and this explains why manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not named him in more starting line-ups.

However, Solskjaer won’t have much choice than to give him those starts after his heroics against the Saints on Sunday evening. His lone start this season came in the Champions League clash with Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday night. He was not amongst the scorers as Manchester United beat their visitors 4-1 to edge closer to the next stage of the competition.

Edinson Cavani was back on the bench for the league trip to in-form Southampton but that lasted for just 45 minutes after he came on for the ineffective Mason Greenwood at half-time with Manchester United trailing 2-0.

His impact was a devastating one on the Saints as he engineered a 3-2 comeback win at the St. Mary’s Stadium.

A brace from him plus the assist for Bruno Fernandes who started the Manchester United fightback as the Southampton rearguard struggled to live up with the quality of Edinson Cavani.

With the latest showing, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won’t be able to ignore the Uruguayan international from his starting team.

As a matter of fact, he needs to start more games if Manchester United want to contend with the other big teams for the Premier League title.

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
