Edinson Cavani is probably not rushed back for Thursday’s Premier League conflict with backside side Sheffield United says Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the hectic end-of-year schedule. The 33-year-old Uruguayan striker returned to training after lacking the past two games because of a muscle injury he suffered against West Ham on December 5. “Edinson has done polite in rehab but we still have to make the decision whether we must risk him because it would be a risk,” said Solskjaer at his eve of match press convention on Wednesday.
“I would doubt he’ll be to be had the next day to come.
“We need to bear in mind of little strains and niggles.”
Solskjaer has been constantly mentioned as being at risk of losing his job most recently after final week’s Champions League exit.
On the other hand, a win over Sheffield United would see them leapfrog Chelsea and Manchester City after either one of them dropped points on Tuesday.
They even have a game in hand on those above them — they’re only five points off the top of the table duo Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool — but face a manic series of six games in just over two weeks.
Solksjaer says the inconsistent set of results will be a feature of the season because of the entire teams having such a lot of fixtures crammed into a shorter space of time.
The present season started a month later than deliberate because of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown halting the crusade final term for three months and leading to it being wrapped up in late July.
“With the tight schedule all over the world I think we can see during the season whoever gets a midweek rest might get a big virtue,” he said.
“In case you are playing midweek each and every week it is tough to have everyone 100% sharp.”
