Chelsea are set to face Manchester United on Sunday, as the Premier League action resumes.
The Blues’ head coach Thomas Tuchel has already talked about Red Devils’ veteran striker Edinson Cavani, as he managed him back at Paris Saint-Germain.
Cavani has been in and out of the United team, regularly interchanging with Anthony Martial. But should he start Sunday’s contest at Stamford Bridge, Tuchel will be fully aware of the threat he will pose.
Speaking back in October, ahead of PSG’s Champions League clash with United, the German said: “They’ve got a great personality, like with many of the biggest players of the game. It’s the same with Edi.
“Very polite, almost a bit shy. Hard, hard worker. He will be there in every training (session) first minute until last minute. Every game from first second until last second. You can totally rely on him.
“He’s living for goals, living for scoring. When he scores, when he has the confidence, he’s one of the (best) number nines in world football.
“Hopefully he will show, not tomorrow but from Wednesday on, he can start to convince all of you. I have nothing against that. But tomorrow it’s not necessary to prove me right.”
