Manchester United stating that it is a three game suspension Anthony Martial picked up in their 6-1 home humiliation by Tottenham, whilst also confirming the rumours that Edinson Cavani won't be involved either.

Cavani joined Man United on transfer deadline day as a free agent after ending his seven-year spell with PSG this summer.

Martial's early season form has already led to former favourite Scholes suggesting the forward "almost conned" the supporters into thinking he was a centre-forward, a u-turn on his own verdict towards the end of last season.

Both Greenwood and Martial have been mainstay squad players for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Norwegian continues his rebuilding bid at the club. The 33-year-old forward will have to wait to make his first Man Utd appearance as he is now self-isolating himself, as per the United Kingdom government's rules, as reported by sports website talkSport.

The Red Devils legend told Stadium Astro when asked how he expects Cavani to fare for United: "Well, we'll have to wait and see won't we". There's no doubt about that. The 27-year-old left-back Alex Telles is expected to be in line to make his league debut for Man Utd.

Before becoming one of the most famous reality stars in the world, Khloe Kardashian was Nicole Richie's personal assistant. However, a source told Us Weekly that the clan members reportedly feel like they are already rich enough without the show.

"Martial nearly conned us into thinking he was one at the end of last season because he scored so many goals and was quite good".

As The Athletic has detailed here, it is hoped that Cavani will bring a lot to the Manchester United dressing room, similarly to Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he arrived at United from PSG in 2016. "But I just don't think he'll take us to the next level now".

Manchester United's new No 7 has had a long and storied football career.

Scholes also criticised the signing of Edinson Cavani. It seems to be - I think of the forwards we have...

"If you're struggling without a centre-forward it should be a two or three month loan signing just to get through a sticky period".
