Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reacts to Edinson Cavani missed chances vs Arsenal
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Edinson Cavani to hit the goal trail again for Manchester United after the
the striker missed two chances to secure all three points against Arsenal.
Cavani fired wide from crosses from Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the second half when he would have
expected to score at least one of the chances.
Marcus Rashford also missed a very presentable first-half opportunity in a frustrating stalemate at the Emirates
as United lost further ground on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
But Solskjaer defended Cavani and insisted the fact the 33-year-old was at least in a position to get the chance
was a positive sign, with missed opportunities part of the life of a center-forward.
“He’s there, I was a striker myself, I had periods when I don’t score, the gaffer [Sir Alex Ferguson] and everyone
around me would say ‘you were there to miss the chances’,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
