Manchester United fans react to Edinson Cavani’s performance vs Istanbul Basaksehir

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were in awe of Edinson Cavani following his remarkable performance vs Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

The experienced striker got a rare start for his new team and it’s safe to say he impressed despite not actually getting on the scoresheet.

United managed to put four past their Turkish opponents and although Cavani played the full match, he couldn’t net an effort himself.

However, the powerful Uruguayan blew supporters away with his movement and brilliant work-rate as he did everything possible other than actually scoring.

On another day there’s no doubt Cavani would’ve found himself on the scoresheet and he’ll certainly start to rack them up once he’s completely sharp and fit.

Cavani reminded Manchester United fans just what it’s like to have a real centre-forward lead the line and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him feature more often once he’s fully fit.

Anthony Martial was the club’s record goalscorer last season and impressed in the striker role but the former PSG man is just such a natural.

The French forward seemed to enjoy himself on the left-wing vs Istanbul Basaksehir and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemed to hint he may play that role more often.
