Edinson Cavani suffered a groin strain on the 11th of February. Since then, he hasn’t featured for Manchester United but is now close to a return. Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Edinson Cavani has been in two training sessions and could be a part of their trip to the Etihad Stadium. Manchester United will be taking on Manchester City on the 6th of March.

Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Scott McTominay and Edinson Cavani could be a part of the squad that will be facing Manchester City. However, neither of them will be a part of the starting lineup as they have recently recovered from their injuries. McTominay’s absence was visible for Manchester United against Atletico Madrid and Watford.

Cristiano Ronaldo has had to work harder in the absence of Edinson Cavani. He has had to start more games and play more minutes which might be a lot more for a 37-year-old player. Cavani has been a very important player for United in the last season and has also stepped up at important moments this season. He could replicate that in the Manchester Derby which could be a huge delight for United fans.

The Red Devils will have another attacking option on the bench if they have to chase a game. Moreover, Scott McTominay can be instrumental in this fixture because of the aggression and physicality he provides to United. Both of them could be key substitutions for Manchester United who can turn the game around if required.

How Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominay could play huge roles in the Manchester Derby?

Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominay will be available on the bench against Manchester City. Both of them are capable of being in the starting lineup. However, they are unable to start the game because of their injuries. It is in a positive way to have players on the bench who are capable of starting the game. They could help their team by bringing in their attributes late in the game when the opposition is out of breath

Edinson Cavani has scored a lot of important goals for Manchester United since he has joined the Red Devils. He is a very experienced player who has been at the top of the game scoring goals consistently. United needs this experience to help them get results in important matches against big clubs. His work rate could also be key to getting control of the game for United.

Scott McTominay is probably the most aggressive midfielder Manchester United have in their squad. His physicality and energy give United a sense of dominance and security in midfield. United’s midfield has not been their best department in recent years as they lack a midfielder who can contribute defensively. They currently only have Matic as a proper defensive midfielder but he has lost pace due to age.

Edinson Cavani has been in the matchday squad only 39 times out of a possible 93 games. That highlights his availability for the club since joining United. This may have increased the pressure on strikers at times. However, he is also a player aged 35 who is likely to sustain injuries quite often. Nevertheless, United should make the best out of him while he is still available as his future remains uncertain with the club.
