'It won't be long before Cavani makes a big impact' - Man Utd striker getting 'sharper & sharper', says Solskjaer


Edinson Cavani Man Utd 2020-21

Edinson Cavani is getting sharper and sharperand it will not be longbefore the Manchester United striker makes a big impactat Old Trafford, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 33-year-old had been without a club since leaving Paris Saint-Germain in June, and has been granted extra time to build up his fitness since his arrival at United.

He has had to be content with three substitute appearances for Solskjaer's side so far, with his latest cameo coming during a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Uruguayan has only shown glimpses of his predatory instincts amid a lack of playing time, but his manager is confident he will soon be ready to prove his worth as a regular starter after seeing him make gradual progress on the training pitch.

“He’s generally a fit man anyway and he’s getting his sharpness in training and he’s got some substitute appearances now," Solskjaer told a press conference ahead of the Red Devils' trip to Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday night.

"We haven’t managed to get him long enough yet to make a big impact but he’s looking sharper and sharper in training so it won’t be long.”

One man who could slot straight into Solskjaer's line-up in Turkey is Anthony Martial, who has just finished serving a three-game Premier League suspension after being sent off in a heavy loss to Spurs before the last international break.

The Frenchman scored a penalty as United thrashed RB Leipzig 5-0 in their last Champions League outing at Old Trafford, and the Norwegian head coach is hopeful he will kick on to rediscover his best form in the coming weeks.

“Anthony has been important for us last season and in the time I’ve been here. So, of course, to have him back is a boost," said Solskjaer."It gives us more options for up front and on either side, and we’ll look forward to seeing the best of Anthony.

"I thought towards the end of the Leipzig game you could see his sharpness getting there and he was really positive and bright which is good.”

Pressed on the need for his side to react stronglyafter suffering their third top-flight reversalof the season with a crucial clash against Everton looming large on the horizon, Solskjaer added: "Definitely. It’s always important to bounce back and respond after a disappointing day.

"We’ve had some time to reflect over this the Arsenal defeat now and it’s gone, and we’ve got to get a performance in Istanbul and hopefully we’ll get three points and then we go to Everton.
