October 30th, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Edinson Cavani’s training performance four days prior to Manchester United’s win at Tottenham was the best he has seen from a player in his time as manager of the club.

Cavani made his second Premier League start of the season and scored United’s second goal in an emphatic 3-0 win against a disjointed Spurs side.

The 34-year-old partnered Cristiano Ronaldo in a 3-5-2 formation as United kept just their second clean sheet in the last 22 games and ended a run of four league matches without a win.

Ronaldo volleyed in the opener before he played Cavani through for his goal and Solskjaer revealed he had settled on a front two early in the week.

“Both of them have been really really good,” Solskjaer said. “Tuesday morning’s training session by Edinson Cavani is the best I’ve seen by an individual since I came here.

“He led the line as a good example for everyone, how to go about changing the mood, changing the performance. The two were told early on they would play up front as a two and they have been like two peas in a pod. It worked today, two excellent goals.

“They’re fit lads and the experience showed through today. Both of them have led the line well this week, all week from training on Tuesday morning to tonight.

“The performance was really good from the start, it was really good from Tuesday morning when we worked on something we thought would work and it did.

“Every man to a tee did their job, we kept a clean sheet and kept the ball away from David. He didn’t have a save to make. it’s great going over to your fans to celebrate with them because they deserve this as well.”
