How Man Utd could line up against Everton with Cavani fit after ankle injury but Bailly a doubt after Saints demolition

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is set to have Edinson Cavani fit for Saturday's clash with Everton.

The Old Trafford match-up, kicking off at 8pm, comes after the Red Devils were handed a largely-clean bill of health.

Eric Bailly is the only doubt despite being fit for the bench in the midweek thrashing of Southampton.

Cavani scored in the first-half of the 9-0 romp before being replaced at the break.

And United boss Solskjaer is confident the Uruguayan will shake off an ankle problem for the Everton game.

He told reporters on Friday: "Edinson should be available, definitely.

"He got a bad ankle knock.

"Eric is a doubt, apart from that everyone's raring to go."


Solskjaer will have a tough time informing any of his midweek starters that they are being dropped for the Everton game.

Mason Greenwood entered the XI for Paul Pogba and the Frenchman could return after watching the drubbing from the bench.

Scott McTominay and Fred's partnership in central midfield is set to continue having started each of the last two games together.

Victor Lindelof should remain in the defence even if Bailly is fit, with Luke Shaw maintaining his spot.

The left-back was rested at half-time of the Southampton win to allow Donny van de Beek a runout.

Solskjaer said ahead of the game: "Consistency of course is vital.

"[We've] done really well away from home, bounced back after Sheffield United defeat, ready to kick on, move on, get momentum.

"We play every two or four days but if we get the consistency and morale and confidence up, who knows?"

Jordan Pickford, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Allan are ruled out for Everton's short hop across the North-West.
