Rashford: Cavani gives Man Utd another dimension up front

Man Utd forward Marcus Rashford believes recent signing Edinson Cavani gives them ‘another dimension’ going forward.

Cavani joined the Red Devils from Paris Saint-Germain in early October after running down his contract.

He’s since become an important squad player at Old Trafford, scoring two goals in the comeback victory over Southampton.

The striker also assisted a Bruno Fernandes goal against Leicester as they drew 2-2 in the Premier League.

Rashford has now spoken about the impact of Cavani. He said: “He’s a top player, he has lots of qualities and I think he gives us another dimension that’s different to what we already have in the team.

“It’s good to play with him and to see him scoring and assisting. That’s important for any forward and we need to keep up between us what we’ve been doing.”

Speaking about Fernandes’ goal and the Cavani assist, the England international said: “For that goal, it was all the way back from Eric Bailly I think. He stepped up and played a good ball through the lines.

“It was a great turn from Edinson and he drove at Jonny Evans, who then had a decision to make – whether to step out to him or stay back and let him shoot.

“Edinson played a nice pass and it was a good goal, but to concede and to throw it away is difficult to take.”

Solskjaer’s men ultimately picked up a draw as Axel Tuanzebe’s own goal gave Leicester an equaliser in the 85th-minute.

The point puts them fourth in the Premier League table, although they could be overtaken by Jose Mourinho’s Spurs today.

United’s next match is against Wolves on Tuesday 29th December. Cavani’s latest performance means he could play a full 90 minutes in the Prem for the first time.
