Manchester United find themselves in need of a timely win tonight as they prepare to host Atalanta in Champions League action.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side have picked up just one win in their last five games and a sole victory in Europe this season.

The Norwegian boss has cut a frustrated figure in recent days and he is facing some key absences tonight.

French pair Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane remain sidelined with Aaron Wan-Bissaka back from suspension.

Fred and Edinson Cavani are also set to come back in after missing the weekend defeat to Leicester City, but Solskjaer’s biggest concern is over skipper Harry Maguire.

The England star looked visibly unfit against the Foxes and Solskjaer must decide whether or not to risk him against the Italians ahead of that huge clash with Liverpool this weekend.
