Edinson Cavani has urged his Manchester United team-mates to keep working hard following their return to the win column this past weekend.

United alleviated some of the pressure on the shoulders of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a much-needed victory over Everton last Saturday.

The Norwegian's troops ran out 3-1 winners over the Toffees at Goodison Park to secure only their third league victory of the season.

A brace from Bruno Fernandes and a stoppage-time strike from Cavani sealed a crucial victory for the Red Devils, who went into the match on the back of consecutive defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.

"[I set up Edinson Cavani because] for a striker it is important to score for his confidence, he will be important for us and the first goal will give him confidence.

Fernandes' sentiment on Cavani is shared by his manager, who told MUTV: “He’s getting better and better and sharper and sharper.

“Today, it was just trying to finish the game off, because we played well. It's great for him to get his first goal.
