Gary Neville and Roy Keane both feel that Edinson Cavani has ousted Anthony Martial in Manchester United’s best starting XI.

The former PSG striker has made a positive impact since joining United on a free transfer in October and was named in the line-up to face Arsenal on Saturday evening.

Speaking on Sky Sports pre-match, Neville and Keane agreed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to start the Uruguayan.

Neville said: “I think Ole, to be fair, has been quite consistent in the big games – this is the team that he plays. The one change, and I think it’ll be a more permanent change in the best XI, is Cavani coming in up top.

“He’s proven himself over the last month or so, he’s been knocking on the door when he’s playing in the midweek games, he’s been coming on in some of the big games . Now he’s made that spot his own,

“I think he’ll start in all the big games going forward and this is the team that Ole goes to with the Fred and McTominay partnership in midfield and Paul Pogba getting pushed out to one of the wide areas.”

When asked if he agreed with Neville, Keane said that Cavani’s impact has been such that he deserves to start now he has gained fitness.

He said: “Yeah, I think Cavani has had a few months now to settle into the club, he’s obviously up to speed fitness-wise and when he’s been involved in the games, he’s had an impact.”
