Edinson Cavani is unlikely to have a MU debut in the Newcastle match this weekend. But the Premier League giants beware the Uruguayan star.
Back after the national team series, MU fans are hoping to see their beloved team change their skin, get up after the 1-6 defeat with Tottenham. There, rookies like Edinson Cavani or Alex Telles, who only joined the “Red Devils” during the summer transfer window, were expected to have a manucian debut.
According to The Athletic, MU has found ways for Cavani to shorten the quarantine period. However, the rookie of the “Red Devils” must complete their quarantine until October 20. Cavani could not launch the MU shirt color during a trip to Newcastle’s field.
MU confirmed that Cavani took another week to quarantine. On October 21, “Red Devils” met PSG in the Champions League group stage 2020/21. Cavani is allowed to play in this match, but must be ready for fitness and form on the pitch.
Although Cavani could not immediately contribute to MU in the Premier League 2020/21, fans of “Red Devils” still have reasons to wait for this blockbuster contract with 0 VND. Because, Cavani was really a threat to the English Premier League giants during the period when he was on the PSG payroll or before that, Napoli.
According to statistics, Edinson Cavani has an extremely impressive record against the English Premier League giants. The Uruguayan striker has a total of 19 encounters with the giants of the “Big 6” group. Of these, Tottenham, the team that recently defeated MU 6-1, is the only British giant that has never faced Cavani.
Statistics from Planet Football show that Chelsea is the team that Cavani faces the most with 8 matches, including 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. In these 8 matches, “El Matador” scored 3 goals and 2 assists; with an average of 202.6 minutes / goal and every 121.6 minutes it contributes to a goal (to score or assist).
Next is Liverpool. When he was in Napoli and PSG, Edinson Cavani 4 times faced the Merseyside red shirt team, with a record of winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 2 matches. In these 4 matches, Cavani stunned, in return 2 assists. When facing the defending Premier League champions, Cavani takes part in a goal every 162.5 minutes of the host team.
With Man City, Edinson Cavani’s head-to-head record is much better. The 33-year-old striker scored 3 goals after 4 encounters, and the host team won 1, lost 1 and drew 2 matches. On average, Cavani every 115.6 minutes makes the MU neighboring team net.
Edinson Cavani twice faced Arsenal in the past, drawing both matches. Although he only played 2 matches, he also had 2 goals. Thus, whenever he confronts “Gunners”, he scores again.
And finally MU. Cavani has only met MU once in the past, which was a PSG defeat 1-3 in the Prince’s Park yard. Only in this match it took until the 90 + 5 minute, coach Tuchel let Cavani in. And of course that was not enough for him to make any mark.
