Why Edinson Cavani was Substituted at half-time

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Edinson Cavani sustained an injury during Manchester United's 3-1 win over West Ham.

Cavani struggled against West Ham in the 45 minutes at the London Stadium that is why he was substuted in the half-time.

The striker wasn't the only one not to return for the second half - Donny van de Beek was replaced too. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes came on for the pair.

Fernandes and Rashford made an impact for Man Utd in the second half with both players  involving in two of the three goals.

"First half we struggled to keep up with the counter attacks and set plays, we had the ball we played with too slower a tempo so we gave the ball away often. Poor first half. Solskjaer explained after the match.

"Second half, of course the goal changes the mood, first one a great goal by Paul. The Mason goal, it's individual quality.  You know we play against a team that drawn to City, beaten up Leicester, Wolves, and  drawn to Tottenham. They're a good team. They make it difficult for you. They're very compact and aggressive".  He added.
