Man Utd boss Solskjaer pleased with how Cavani 'complements' Rashford, Martial

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with how Edinson Cavani 'complements' his other Manchester United forwards.

The Uruguayan pounced on a mistake from Ademola Lookman to score for United in their 2-1 win over Fulham on Wednesday.

"He's a centre forward that you want in the box. His movement is incredible, it's for everyone to learn from," the United boss said.

"It's almost like I get frustrated at times when he goes wide to put the crosses in because he's the one that you want in there and sometimes I have to ask him to do less running but even in the second half, the header was a great save by Areola.

"He's come down the side a few times and his movement is spot on, so he's the type of centre forward that we've been looking for and he complements Marcus (Rashford) and Mason (Greenwood) and Anthony (Martial) really."
