Lots of Manchester United fans have been fuming at the decision by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bench Edinson Cavani versus Southampton for their game in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood started up top for the Red Devils with Anthony Martial out of the squad altogether.
Should Cavani start for Manchester United?
Behind them is a diamond of Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Fred and Bruno Fernandes in midfield, with a back four of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Alex Telles in front of David de Gea in between the posts.
Dean Henderson, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams, Dan James and Juan Mata make up the bench along with Cavani.
The Uruguay international would have offered a big goal threat from the start having scored a very impressive 393 goals combined at both senior club and international level, but Solskjaer has elected to leave him on the bench.
Manchester United fan reaction to Cavani being benched
These Man United supporters fumed on Twitter after learning that the 33-year-old striker had been left on the bench against the Saints at St. Mary’s Stadium:

For me a shambles again, keep a formation and stick to it. Gone more defensive with it! Cavani offers so much

How cavani isn’t in the starting 11 is beyond me
