“His second goal in this match, the stoppage-time winner, will no doubt be the one that crops up more often in this regard, but I cannot look past the first of Edi’s brace on that late-November afternoon at St Mary’s. Having been introduced as a half-time substitute with United 2-0 down against Southampton, the Uruguayan had already set up Bruno Fernandes to pull one back for the Reds, before getting onto the scoresheet himself in what we would come to know as trademark Cavani fashion.
“After Alex Telles’ corner from the left had worked its way to Fernandes on the edge of the box, the Portuguese’s low driven effort was deflected into the air and appeared to sit up perfectly for our forward who instinctively dived and latched onto it, diverting the ball into the net to make it 2-2. El Matador would then of course go on to cap off his inspired showing later in the day, displaying the intricate movement and technique of an expert poacher to head home the all-important go-ahead goal, deep into added time.”
