Cristiano Ronaldo is refocused and ready for this week’s Champions League tie.

Ronaldo has put the weekend’s disappointment behind him and is determined to look forward.

United have a crucial Champions League clash with Atalanta at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo says there are ‘no excuses’ for United ahead of the pivotal fixture.

United have one win and one defeat in the competition so far, winning the most recent fixture 2-1 over Villarreal thanks to a last minute Ronaldo winner.

Ronaldo has two goals in two games in the Champions League this season and is the competition’s all time record goalscorer.

He has not scored in his last two United matches and he will be keen to get back on track this week, to add to his tally of five.

Ronaldo’s signing has come under a little scrutiny in recent days due to United’s inability to get the best out of him in the recent defeat to Leicester.

It is possible there is a change of system against Atalanta to try and help Ronaldo out.

Despite the negative mood among many supporters right now, it’s important to remember that seeing Ronaldo under the lights at Old Trafford in the Champions League again should be a special moment for everyone in attendance.

If it all goes well and Ronaldo fires United to a win, then the night will be a memorable occasion and take the Red Devils to the top of the group.
