Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has been suspended for three games after breaching an FA rule on social media.
The first of those three matches is a visit to Aston Villa on Friday evening (8pm), while they will also play the Carabao Cup semi-final with Manchester City and the FA Cup match against Watford.
The infraction related to posting on the Instagram photo and video-sharing platform, which has since been removed, following the 3-2 win over Southampton in November, in which Cavani knocked off the bench to score twice to claim a United’s comeback victory.
According to an FA statement, Cavani will miss United’s next three matches and have been fined 100,000 pounds.
