Edison Cavani came into the English Premier League from Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent for the club. He has soon displaced Anthony Martial as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's preferred number 9.
His goal against José Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur saw him join the top 5 players with the most headed goals this season in the league.
The Uruguayan now has 5 goals scored from headers. The only player with more is Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has scored 6.
Cavani initially had his goal overturned by the video assistant referee who saw a foul committed by Scott Mctominay in the buildup to the goal. However, the striker would be happy he got to score again.
While it is extremely unlikely that he starts the game against Granada in the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Europa League, Solskjaer could rely on him to be an additional option from the bench and he is not a bad one either.
How many more goals do you think he will score?
