How Man United could line up with Cavani and Telles

To improve the first team, Man United splashed the cash and lured the likes of Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles on deadline day.

The Uruguayan international is a proven quality striker and the Brazilian star is a top left back. The question is, how Man United would line up with the duo?

In my view, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should get both the stars straight into the starting XI after the international break.

The Norwegian manager has mainly used Martial in the lone center forward’s position. The Frenchman is not a natural striker and this season, he has been out of form.

The former Monaco man will be out due to suspension when the PL returns but that should not matter. Even when he is available, I think Cavani must get the nod to start.

On the other hand, Telles should replace Luke Shaw to become the club’s first choice left back. The England international missed 17 games due to injury last season.

As far as this season is concerned, he has been disastrous in the back-line that has already conceded eleven goals in the opening three Premier League fixtures.

Therefore, the former Southampton defender should move down the pecking order at Old Trafford. Here is how Man United could line up with Cavani and Telles:


  1. I’d take McTominay in Pogba’s place when the opponent plays fast football and put in Matic when the opponent is slow. Pogba would be Fernande’s substitute while Fred would deputise Van de Beek.

  2. I think that the new goalie should be along with all the new players as a change in the atmosphere and to see if the difference and change could make a better impact on Man.Utd.
