Manchester United: Edinson Cavani still out vs Leeds

Manchester United: Edinson Cavani still out vs Leeds -Manchester United

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani will not feature against Leeds United this afternoon, with a fresh problem now emerging.

The Lowdown: Cavani’s absence

Cavani, labelled as a ‘highly important’ player by Ralf Rangnick, has missed 14 Premier League matchday squads this season, most of which have been due to various injuries.

The 35-year-old has missed games against Southampton and Brighton with a groin problem but was pictured back in training on Thursday. However, despite this, it doesn’t look as if he will play any part at Elland Road this afternoon.

The Latest: Rangnick’s comments

Talking ahead of the trip to Elland Road, relayed by @utdreport, Rangnick gave an update on the striker’s condition.

He admitted that the Uruguayan is still suffering from the groin issue and claimed he is now having problems with his stomach too.

“As it seems, Edinson Cavani will still be out, he’s still having some problems with his groin and his stomach.”

The Verdict: A blow

United had a lack of central attacking options to bring off the bench in the week, so having Cavani back involved against Marcelo Bielsa’s side would have been handy.

You’d expect Cristiano Ronaldo will once again lead the line for the Red Devils, and should Rangnick go with an unchanged side, Marcus Rashford would be the only available attacker to bring on.

Strength in depth is crucial at this stage of the season, and hopefully, Cavani will be back in time for Wednesday’s trip to Atletico Madrid.
