Edinson Cavani rounded off Manchester United’s bounce-back performance against Everton with his first goal for the club.
Cavani arrived at Man United late in the summer transfer window after departing PSG. On paper, it looked to be a smart acquisition from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, securing one of the best strikers of his generation without paying a penny.
The Uruguayan has made a few substitute appearances previously, which proved to be goalless, but Cavani found the finishing touch with virtually the last kick of the game at Goodison Park to make it seven consecutive away wins in the Premier League for United.
Cavani fired across Jordan Pickford to make it 3-1 to United after a nervy second-half and ease the pressure on manager Solskjaer after back-to-back defeats in all competitions to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.
