In the 87th minute of Manchester United’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Everton, Edinson Cavani fired the Red Devils ahead in the closely-contested tie.
Harry Maguire drilled the ball into Anthony Martial with a fine pass out of the defence, Martial turned forward before playing it into Cavani.
The experienced talisman showcased his elite quality by skipping away from Ben Godfrey before hammering the ball into the bottom corner with a superb finish.
Cavani being the decisive scorer was poetic and controversial at the same time, the Uruguayan escaped a red card – and any punishment at all – after a nasty neck grab and squeeze in the 51st minute.
? “That’s what you need to do to get to a semi-final, a ruthless strike from Edinson Cavani!”

Everton fans will be absolutely livid after this, in a turning of the tables, an English side would’ve actually been wishing for VAR to be used tonight.
