The Uruguay international missed four games for United due to a muscular injury but returned for the goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening.
Martial, meanwhile, missed the trip to Selhurst Park after suffering a knee injury in training on Monday.
But the France international is set to return for Sunday’s Manchester derby as he arrived with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad at their team hotel on Saturday evening.
Cavani, however, was not pictured among the United players who met up at the hotel.
The striker was replaced with 14 minutes remaining in the draw with Palace but did not appear to be injured.
David De Gea’s absence continues following the birth of his daughter Yanay. Dean Henderson is set to start in goal for a third consecutive game.
‘I’ll give him the time he needs before he comes back, he asked to go home and in the old world that’s a day and you come back and you’re ready again and now we’re in a pandemic and the quarantines of course it’s a different world but still we felt it was right,’ Solskjaer said of De Gea’s situation on Friday.
‘Dean came in and played well and he’s ready so I’ll give David the time he needs.
‘As soon as David travels back we just have to follow the rules. Yeah, I expect him to be available very soon, not too far. I don’t know when he’ll be back, it won’t be long before he comes.
‘Dean did well against Palace and I’m sure he’s looking forward to the City game as well, he’s had that experience already this season in the Carabao Cup so that stands him in good stead.’
