Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Cavani gave us glimpse of what he can do

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was encouraged by Edinson Cavani's showing for their 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

Solskjaer reckons the one-time Ligue 1 and Serie A Golden Boot winner can provide the Reds with a new weapon.

"He showed in glimpses [what he can do]. He'll give us a presence in the box," said Solskjaer.

"There was a nice little run towards the near post, a nice little flick. He almost had another one when Thiago Silva had a great block - that would have been great for him.

"He has clever movements, great runs. He is an experienced centre-forward and the more we get the ball into him in and around the box we will get some goals from him. He has come in and had a great influence on the training ground already but we know he needs game time to get his sharpness."
