UK Solskjaer drops fresh Edinson Cavani hint after Manchester United vs Aston Villa last minute news
PremierLeague-News.Com- Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes all scored for Man Utd against Villa in the Premier League.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United's players are still learning how to get the best out of Edinson Cavani, as he praised his forwards after the win over Aston Villa. Solskjaer had special praise for Cavani and Mason Greenwood following the 3-1 triumph at Villa Park, with both forward players — and Bruno Fernandes, via a penalty — on the scoresheet again. Cavani came off the bench to put gloss on the win with a late goal, netting his eighth goal in his past seven United appearances. The 34-year-old could have clinched himself an extra year at the club, with Solskjaer having stated in the past his desire to keep Cavani for another 12 months despite interest from Boca Juniors. Speaking to Sky Sports after the win, Solskjaer had yet more praise for the veteran Uruguayan, who is proving a valuable asset for United at the moment. Solskjaer said: "His movement, his desire to score goals. A great cross from Marcus [Rashford]. We're getting to learn Edinson as well, and hopefully we can use him more next season." On Greenwood, Solskjaer reiterated his belief that there are few better finishers than the 19-year-old, who took his goal superbly to clinch the lead for United in the second half versus Villa.

He's got all the finishes, Mason. "He had a long night Thursday, worked really hard today and we thought maybe to take him off at half-time, because he needs some rest, the boy.

. The best." Solskjaer will now prepare United for two more games in the next four days, against Leicester (on Tuesday) and then Liverpool (on Thursday), both at Old Trafford. He admitted the schedule is proving tough on United at the moment.
He added: "It's always going to be difficult after playing away in Europe. We didn't get back from Rome until 4am, 5am in the morning on Friday. Great reaction at half-time again, even though I felt we were the better side in the first half, created chances but didn't get the goal. "I can't blame them. The advantage of being fresh going into a game like this is quite high, and it's just a coincidence — we could have scored the first goal, once or twice before they scored. "I'm pleased with everyone. I know how hard it is towards the end of a long season. "A massive result because it takes a little bit of the pressure away. It's going to be a hard physical test the next three days, but we've just got to see how everyone is tomorrow morning and Tuesday morning."
