The Uruguayan international has recovered from tendon difficulties and is vying for a spot in the team for the trip to East Anglia.
The centre-forward, who will be aiming to make his debut appearance under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, will be given a late decision.
Although Cavani may play, Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial will not be on display at Carrow Road, but they should be available before the end of the year.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Nemanja Matic are doubts, while Paul Pogba is still out, but has spoken to the manager about his comeback.
What is Ralf Rangnick saying
“Yes, very much so,” Ralf responded when asked by MUTV’s Stewart Gardner if we can count on some of the absentees for the busy holiday season. Tomorrow’s game, the only possible candidate might be Edi. We have to wait and see.
“He was training with the team yesterday and a couple of days before that so we have to wait and see how he feels today.
“For Rapha, the game comes too early. He was out a couple of weeks and we need to make sure he stays fully fit for the next couple of months, until the end of the season.
“So we don’t want to rush him too much. I am very positive, in the next couple of weeks, he will be available.
“With Anthony,” Rangnick continued. “We’ll wait and see. It’s a question of pain and how tolerable the pain will be on his knee but, for tomorrow, he won’t be one of the players who is available.”
The home side will be without Brandon Williams, due to the rules regarding his loan move from Old Trafford.
