Arsenal legend, Martin Keown, has described Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani, as a ‘predator’ following the Red Devils’ Premier League 2-1 victory over Fulham on Wednesday night.
Cavani’s first-half goal and Paul Pogba’s second-half strike ensured Manchester United defeated Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The result against Fulham means Man United are now on top of the Premier League table with 40 points from 19 games.
“He [Edinson Cavani] is a real predator who has been prolific throughout Europe,” Keown told Match of the Day.
“Today, he was really important. It’s his link-up play, his overall play. He must be a nightmare to play against.
“I didn’t have the pleasure to play against him, but he’s a big player for them, a top player. He just waits for his chance and then smashes it in, brilliant.
“He’s a provider too, and he works for the team. He wants to close people down, he still puts a shift in at 33. He’s outstanding in that area.”
Cavani will now hope to lead Man United to victory when they tackle Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday.
