 Manchester United: WDLWLW


 The Italian outfit have been quite inconsistent in recent weeks and they are coming into this game on the back of just two wins across six matches.

 That said, they are unbeaten in their last three matches across all competitions and Atalanta will fancy their chances against a vulnerable Manchester United side.

 Possible Atalanta starting line-up

 Juan Musso, Matteo Lovato, Merih Demiral, Marten de Roon, Davide Zappacosta, Remo Freuler, Teun Koopmeiners, Joakim Maehle, Ruslan Malinovskyi, Mario Pasalic, Luis Muriel

 Manchester United

 The Red Devils bounced back from their 5-0 thumping against Liverpool with a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last time out and they will be looking to build on that performance with another win here.

 The Premier League side managed to secure a 3-2 win over Atalanta back in October and they will be hoping for a similar result here.

 Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure after failing to win three of Manchester United’s last five matches across all competitions and the visitors will look to secure all three points.

 Possible Manchester United starting line-up

 David de Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo


 Atalanta will look to make life difficult for the Premier League side at home but Manchester United have the quality and depth to grind out a positive result here.

 The Old Trafford outfit will be full of determination after their recent performance against Liverpool and they should be able to pick up a narrow win this week.
