In second place, Cavani, as he did at Old Trafford a week ago, scored a brace against the Giallorossi and was understandably high in the voting. Our no. 7 received an impressive 43 per cent of the votes.
After two goals at the iconic Stadio Olimpico, the 34-year-old now has five goals in four Europa League outings for the club and 14 goals in total for the Reds since he joined the club in October 2020.
With 93 per cent of the votes split between De Gea and Cavani, it was really a two-horse race for the Man of the Match award. Their closest competitor was Bruno Fernandes, who registered an assist for the striker’s equaliser to make it 2-2 on Thursday night.
