Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani has returned from ban to take his place in the Manchester United squad for the Burnley game on Tuesday night. The Clarets host Manchester United in a rescheduled week on game in the Premier League. Manchester United and Manchester City were exempted from playing their respective week one fixtures with the other teams at the start of the season after they were granted an extra one-week rest due to their involvement in the latter stages of European club competitions last season. Both Manchester United and Manchester City didn’t finish their European campaigns until August.

EdinsonCavani has missed the last three games for his team in all competitions after he was slapped with a three-match ban and also fined for his post on Instagram towards the end of last year. He was found guilty of aiding racist behaviour through his post and has missed the last three games as a result. The ex-Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Napoli and Palermo attacker missed the Wolves, Aston Villa and Watford games which took place at the Theatre of Dreams.

Without EdinsonCavani, Manchester United beat Wolves 1-0 at the start of his ban with Three Lions of England player Marcus Rashford getting the lone goal of the Premier League encounter. He was also missing for the second match of his three-game ban as his team beat Aston Villa 2-1 to make it two straight league wins. Portuguese player Bruno Fernandes scored the winning goal just past the hour mark from the spot to hand Manchester United a slim victory.EdinsonCavani served the third and final game of his ban during the FA Cup win over Watford of the English Championship. Scott McTominaywas responsible for the winning goal as Manchester United beat the Hornets 1-0 at home in the third round thereby securing a spot in the fourth round of the oldest club cup competition in England.
