Will Cavani helps United clash against PSG?

The Red Devils only need a point on Wednesday to guarantee their spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League, a competition they last won back in 2008 when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a positive injury update ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

Like several Premier League teams this season, the Red Devils have been hit by absentees and they had to make do without France international Anthony Martial for the 3-2 win at Southampton on Sunday due to illness.

However, the 24-year-old, who scored 17 league goals in the 19/20 campaign, has managed to recover in time for the visit of reigning Ligue 1 champions PSG, who were held to a 2-2 draw by Bordeaux last time out.

Speaking about Martial to the club’s official website, Solskjaer said: “Anthony got through the session and felt okay, so he’s also available for selection.”

United were also sweating over the fitness of left-back Alex Telles and goalkeeper David de Gea, who were both forced off during the clash at St Mary’s, but the duo are expected to play.

Asked about Cavani, Solskjaer said: “Edinson is ready to play. It’s special for him to play against PSG, so that will affect him mentally. From knowing him, I know that will give him energy.

United are 13/8 to pick up the three points, while the draw is 13/5 and PSG are 6/4 to claim the spoils at Old Trafford.
