Edinson Cavani’s work rate vs Everton hailed by Man Utd fans after clip emerges

  • Rob Swan

It’s not just Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is under pressure at Old Trafford, many of the players are too.

Are Fred, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay good enough to be first-choice midfielders for Man Utd? Should this be Anthony Martial’s final season at the club? Can Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes play together in the same XI? When will we see the best of Jadon Sancho?

There are many unanswered questions as we head into the international break, but one player the fans are very happy with right now is centre-forward Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan was tempted to leave Old Trafford in the summer after one year in Manchester but agreed to extend his stay for a second season - partly because he wanted the experience of playing in front of the club’s fans.

United supporters were delighted by his decision following a debut campaign that saw him score 17 goals in 39 appearances.


The 34-year-old is still waiting to get off the mark this term but continues to impress fans with his exemplary work ethic.

We saw him sprinting to win a loose ball that Ronaldo had given up on against Villarreal in the Champions League last week.

Cavani's work rate vs Everton praised by United fans

Days later, against Everton in the Premier League, Cavani showed his incredible work ethic once again - this time at the opposite end of the pitch.

When the ball bounced into the penalty area, right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka was out of position and United were in trouble.

Everton’s left-winger Anthony Gordon was the first man to the ball and would have found himself in a huge amount of space were if not for Cavani’s desire to get back and defend.


Cavani got his head down, pushed 20-year-old Mason Greenwood to one side and sprinted hard to close down Gordon, whose cross hit the South American.

Cavani, who gave his No. 7 shirt to Ronaldo last month, is the definition of a team player and there’s no doubt that he’s setting such a brilliant example to the club’s youngsters.

If more of his teammates display the same fight and desire between now and the end of the season, the Red Devils will be just fine.
