Solskjaer explains Manchester United roster against Aston Villa and inclusion of Edinson Cavani – .


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the hunt for fresh legs when his Manchester United side take on Aston Villa this weekend.
United return to the Premier League at midday on Saturday and will be eager to get back on their way to victory after a disappointing Carabao Cup exit at West Ham in midweek.

In order to spark a response United have made 11 changes from the last game and Solskjaer is hoping that will reflect well with their performances on the pitch.

“They’re fresh, well-prepared, performed well this week,” he told MUTV of the lineup. “A few on the bench Wednesday night. We have prepared very well. Early Kicks… It’s tough when you play Wednesday night. That’s part of the reason we did what we did on Wednesday night. “

The biggest change for United is the return of forward Edinson Cavani to the squad of the day.

Cavani, 34, has only played once in the past 12 weeks since Uruguay were knocked out of the Copa America and he has been sidelined for the past two weeks after suffering an injury during the international fortnight.

Solskjaer added: “He’s an exceptional striker, a finisher, his movement into the box. Close matches are always decided on the surfaces, so having another striker is good. “
