Suara.com – Veteran striker Edinson Cavani is likely to return to strengthen Manchester United during a visit to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Thursday (4/3/2021) tomorrow morning.
After Cavani finished training Tuesday (2/3/2021) without injury, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes the striker is ready to be deployed again after missing four matches.
“We had a training session this morning, of course there is something enlightening and we look fine,” Solskjaer said at a press conference on Tuesday, as reported by ESPN on its website.
“There are some doubts and we have to give them as much time as possible. Edinson’s been training, that’s good. Let’s hope there’s no reaction.”

However, Solskjaer still cannot be strengthened by Paul Pogba, who is still wrapped in a thigh injury. He has been out for nearly a month but has returned to training with his team-mates.
“Paul is still not ready,” said Solskjaer.
Manchester United will play Palace 15 points behind league leaders Manchester City if Pep Guardiola’s men beat Wolves at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday morning WIB.
Solskjaer’s team won only two league matches during February. But he rejects the opinion that the pressure to be a champion has affected the mentality of his players.
“We enjoy being as close as possible to the top of the table. It’s about the quality of the opponent, the quality of the tactics, the demands of this season … Pressure? Nothing,” concluded Solskjaer. (Among)
