Man United: Video of Edinson Cavani 'destroying English teams' ahead of debut vs Chelsea

Can Edinson Cavani scored on his Man Utd debut?

Edinson Cavani is set to make his Manchester United debut against Chelsea.

The Uruguayan is part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad for today's game at Old Trafford and he could even feature from the start due to Anthony Martial's absence.

United's usual centre-forward was sent off for violent conduct against Tottenham and is not available for selection until November 7.

That could see Cavani start as United's striker alongside the in-form Marcus Rashford, an exciting prospect on paper.

Red Devils fans will understandably be eager to see their new Uruguayan striker in action and they will have high expectations for the 33-year-old.

He may be getting in on in years - for a footballer - but he's still a top, top striker, one who has plagued English sides in the Champions League down the years.

In 19 appearances for Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain against members of the Premier League's top six, Cavani has scored eight goals and provided four assists.

Chelsea are actually his favourite English opponent, the Uruguayan scoring three goals and notching two assists in his eight games against the Blues.

He thrives against English opposition and a YouTube video from KaiiZoFilms shows how Cavani has 'destroyed' the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea during his career.

Not bad Edinson, not bad at all.

One of the best of Cavani's eight goals against English opposition came against Chelsea back in 2016, his late strike sealing a 2-1 win for PSG on the night.

The perfect run, a finish to match and a brilliant celebration to top it all off, classic Cavani.

When asked about how the Uruguayan has settled in at United so far, fan favourite Juan Mata replied, per Sky Sports: "Very good.

"He's training with the team already and you can see how professional he is, how driven he is and has been during his career.

"When you have such a great striker with such a great scoring record and how professional he is, his mentality has made him one of the best strikers in the world over the last year.

"It's great to have him with us. I'm trying my best to help him with the adaptation but I'm sure he doesn't need a lot of help on the pitch. I'm sure he'll be very good for us."

Are we in for a spectacular Cavani debut at Old Trafford this evening?
