When the Uruguayan's next chance came, the nearest Chelsea defender did more to nullify his threat and it just so happened to be Edinson's former Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Thiago Silva. The Brazilian centre-back expertly read Cavani's movement and brilliantly blocked his attempt from the right-hand side of the box, after good approach play by the Reds.
United's no.7 is the third player from Uruguay to represent the Reds, after Diego Forlan (2001-05) and Guillermo Varela (2013-2017), and he could be swiftly followed by a fourth. His countryman and fellow new signing Facundo Pellistri played his first game for the club in the Under-23s' 2-1 win over Everton on Friday night.
