Solskjaer takes responsibility for Maguire selection in defeat

Manchester United are under pressure to get back to winning ways as they welcome Atalanta to Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The Red Devils have won just one of their previous five matches – the last-gasp victory over Villarreal, courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo’s 95th-minute winner.

That result got United’s Champions League campaign back on track following a disappointing opening defeat to Young Boys, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will look to build on it against their Italian opponents.

Atalanta are so far unbeaten in the competition having registered a win and a draw in their first two fixtures, and the 2020 semi-finalists will be confident of causing an upset.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.

What channel is the match on?

Subscribers can catch all the action on BT Sport 2, with coverage getting underway at 7pm.

Team news

Raphael Varane is still sidelined for United, meaning it’s likely Victor Lindelof will slot alongside Harry Maguire again to deputise.

Maguire made his own comeback from injury in the weekend defeat to Leicester, though boss Solskjaer conceded it may have been an error to rush his captain back.

“I pick the team, Harry Maguire showed no reaction and I hold my hand up if that does not work out. If we concede four, I probably made a bad decision.”

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is eligible to play though after United successfully won their appeal to UEFA over his two-match ban.

Anthony Martial could also return to the squad after nursing a knock which kept him out of the trip to Leicester.

What’s been said?

Solskjaer is well aware his side’s current slump needs reversing quickly and urged his players to put the recent international break behind them and focus on the task at hand.

“You have to bounce back,” he told United’s reporters. “You have to respond. We’ve had the international break to look at things.

“Everyone’s been away and maybe they came into this confident, because they’ve done well their international teams. But we need to sort this out.

“We have five games until the next break and we’ve got to stick together. There’s no other way to do it.

“You cannot lose focus; you’ve got to trust yourself, trust your team-mates and make sure that we’re ready on Wednesday night because that will be a difficult game as well.”







Match odds

Despite their indifferent form, United still head into the fixture as favourites over Atalanta, whose domestic form sees them sat sixth in Serie A.

A late equaliser from Robin Gosens helped Atalanta snatch a point in their only away match in the Champions League so far this season.
