Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has shared his delight with the impact Edinson Cavani had during Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Fulham.

The Uruguayan, who was suspended for three games for improper conduct, was a part of Solskjaer’s team for the trip to London, and he rewarded the coach’s confidence with a great goal to get us level, after the hosts had taken the lead.

After the match, Solskjaer was full of praise for the 33 year old, and hinted that he could start playing more often.

“That’s a centre-forward’s goal and you’ve got to be there to score,” the gaffer said.

“That’s what he does. If you just watch him, if you have a player cam on him, his movement is incredible, fantastic.”

Solskjaer added, “We’ve just got to get used to using him more. In the second half when he gets his header, what a save by [Alphonse] Areola. So it’s good to have different options up front.”

Cavani’s goal against Fulham was his fourth of the season, after 12 matches, and he now becomes United’s most prolific number 7 since 2014.
