Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has backed Edinson Cavani to make a huge impact at the club after the he scored his first United goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Everton.

Maguire was full of praise for the Uruguayan and has been impressed with the player’s attitude and application in training.

He has backed the veteran striker to score plenty more goals for the club.

“It’s great to see Cavani come on,” Maguire told MUTV.

“He worked tirelessly up there and did the dirty work and he got his rewards right at the end. I think he’s going to be a big player for us, he’s going to score goals.

“He knows where the back of the net is and I’ve seen that in training a few times already.

“He’s just getting up to speed in terms of his training and work rate but he’s going to be a big player for us.”
