OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER says Edinson Cavani is raring to go and ready to kick-start his season after completing his ban.
Manchester United’s Uruguayan forward was given a three-match ban over a social media post that was deemed to use racist language.
However he is back in contention for the trip to Burnley on Tuesday night when the Red Devils can go top of the table.
Cavani has started only five matches since joining the Red Devils in October but Solskjaer says he will be vital going forward.
He said: "Edinson has trained well when he’s been banned, he had a couple of days off but he’s ready to go.
"He’s a different option, I’m glad to have him back. He’s contributed really well.
"He will be really important and his season starts on Tuesday night."
United’s record signing Paul Pogba will be touch and go for the game at Turf Moor as he was not able to train fully on Monday.
The same applies to defender Eric Bailly but Solskjaer hopes other doubts Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw will be OK.
He said: "All of them trained on Monday. Paul and Eric didn’t do all of it but Luke and Victor did.
"So I’ve got a decent amount of players to pick from. Let’s see with Paul and Eric how they are on Tuesday."

A point against the Clarets would see United go top of the table for the first time in two and a half years.
Solskjaer said: "We are better off than at same time last year, won more scored more and played better football.
"That’s a positive but nobody remembers the January tables as the league table doesn’t matter then.
"But when you get to March/April, that’s where it will be decided. We started later this year and have this game to catch up but we have to make sure we take points from it."
