‘He has to play against West Brom if Man Utd want a victory’ – Solskjaer urged to make crucial team selection

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has advised Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to play Edinson Cavani against West Brom this weekend.

Wright believes the Uruguayan’s clever movement will be vital for the Red Devils if we are to overcome Sam Allardyce’s Baggies this weekend.

The Uruguay international has scored six goals in 16 Premier League appearances since arriving at Old Trafford on a free transfer back in the summer.

“The way they [United] are playing now and we know that they like to break, playing against West Brom will be Big Sam’s dream,” Wright told Ringer FC’s Wrighty’s House podcast.

“We saw what he did to Liverpool up there it’s going to be that kind of situation for Man Utd, he’s going to make that tough.

“If it means he’s going to play five [at the back] and four in front and the one guy who’s going to be in front of them.

“Man Utd have got to try to break that down, which we know is their achilles heel.

“This is where people like Cavani has to play because the one bit of movement, the one bit of quality from [Bruno] Fernandes and that could be enough to beat West Brom.

“But that game is not a foregone conclusion simply because West Brom will probably relish that kind of defensive challenge than any other at the moment against a Man United side that we know it sometimes just doesn’t happen.”
