MANCHESTER UNITED will be without Edinson Cavani for Saturday's game against Newcastle.

The 33-year-old joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side on a free transfer on deadline day.

But Cavani will have to wait a little longer before he can make his Red Devils debut.

Why is Cavani not playing vs Newcastle?

The striker has had to self isolate for two weeks following his move to England.

This has ruled him out of this weekend's showdown against Steve Bruce's side.
