Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is in line to return from injury against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "We've had a training session this morning. Of course it was a light one.

"We're looking OK. There's a couple of doubts for tomorrow that we have to give as much time as possible.

"Edinson trained, he joined in so that's good. Let's hope there's no reaction after the session. Hopefully he will travel with the squad."

The Norwegian said his side should have been awarded a penalty for an apparent handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi in the first-half at Stamford Bridge.

Shaw believed the referee told United captain Harry Maguire that he would not give a penalty, after consulting the pitch-side replay service, because it would cause "a lot of talk" - but United later clarified that Shaw "misheard" the conversation.

Luke Shaw told Sky Sports on Sunday what he thought referee Stuart Attwell had said to Harry Maguire during the 0-0 draw at Chelsea, but Man Utd later insisted that Shaw 'misheard' the exchange

The United boss said the incident was "water under the bridge" but suggested Chelsea players had offered undue pressure on the referee after Hudson-Odoi and Cesar Azpiliecueta were seen reproaching Attwell as he consulted the monitor.

"I think the refs have a difficult enough job without extra pressures so we just leave him to it, [to] make as many good decisions as they can," the Norwegian said.

Ole: Pressure not the cause of downturn in PL form

Manchester United's downturn in form in the Premier League in recent weeks is not down to pressure, says Solskjaer

United have won just two of their last seven Premier League matches, seeing them slip off the top and well behind City but Solskjaer insists pressure is not the cause of their downturn in form.

"Not at all, that's the Premier League," Solskjaer said. "The pressure has not been there at all.

"Of course we enjoy being as close to the top as possible but that's the Premier League for you.

"That's quality of the opposition, the quality of the tactics, the standards, the demands of the season.

"We've played I don't how many games but we're in the Europa League, we're in the FA Cup, Premier League and it's the strangest year of all for everyone. So, pressure? No. It's just that's the Premier League."

Meanwhile, Solskjaer praised the progress Shaw and fellow full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka have shown this season, with both players possible candidates for England selection under Gareth Southgate ahead of this summer's Euros.

"I don't want to do Gareth's job but I feel both my full-backs have done really well and I have been very pleased with the development in the two of them," Solskjaer said.

"The improvement has been there to see so Gareth has got good options if he fancies but I am not going to say he should or shouldn't [pick them]."
