who has not been at his best form recently.

“I’m sceptical about some of the players he [Solskjaer] is leaving on the touchline,”

the former United full-back told talkSPORT.

“It does worry me that you’re leaving good players on the touchline who you need to get in, get playing consistently and get the best from them.

“Edinson Cavani is one of them. The one thing United have been lacking for quite a few years now is a consistent centre-forward, somebody who knows how to play in that position with their runs, holding up the ball, playing little one-twos and movement in behind.

“United haven’t had that; the only one they’ve had of any note since Sir Alex retired was Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“All Ole is trying to do at the moment is get some consistency in their game, and if players like Cavani – with the levels they have played at – are playing then maybe they will.”

Cavani has not been playing so much since his arrival and many pundits have been criticizing Solskjaer’s decision to put his Uruguayan star on the bench as Martial keeps failing the fans’ expectations in the center forward position.
