Manchester United have already ruled out TWO players for their Premier League clash against Leicester City.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have dropped points in their last two league games, losing to Aston Villa before drawing with Everton last weekend.
And ahead of resuming their league campaign against Leicester on October 16, they've been dealt a big blow.
Per Simon Stone, Man United are expecting Cavani and Fred to play in all three South American World Cup qualifiers.
Along with others, Man Utd expecting Fred and Edinson Cavani to play in all three South American WC qualifiers, first one overnight, third 0130 kick-off BST next Friday morning, so little chance of them being involved at Leicester the following day.

Brazil play Uruguay on October 15, the night before Man United's fixture at Leicester.
Cavani and Fred started in Man United's 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford.
The Brazilian midfielder has been a regular in Solskjaer's team, taking up a position in centre-midfield.
As for the Uruguayan, he made his first league start of the season as he played ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was benched.
Solskjaer will need a result against the Foxes having dropped points in their last two games and with pressure mounting on his position.
His side currently sit in fourth place with 14 points on the board, two points behind league leaders Chelsea.
