Manchester United youngster Amad has been included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 25-man squad for the Champions League clash against Atalanta.

The Ivorian international made his comeback from injury on Saturday where he played 90 minutes for the club’s under-23 side in a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham.

The 19-year-old will be travelling to Bergamo where he will reunite with familiar faces following his time playing under Gian Piero Gasperini, before securing his big-money switch to United.

In our first-ever visit to the Gewiss Stadium, Anthony Martial, who has missed the last four games, is also back in the squad, as is Paul Pogba, who is available for Champions League selection despite his ongoing domestic suspension.

However, one man who hasn’t made the trip is Victor Lindelof, who picked up a knock in training earlier today.

The Swede’s absence means that Solskjaer will have to make at least one change to the starting line-up that beat Tottenham 3-0 win on Saturday.

If the Norwegian wants to stick with a back three against La Dea, he could bring Luke Shaw or Eric Bailly into centre back. Scott McTominay also has experience of filling in at centre back for club and country.

 

A win in our fourth Group F fixture will put us in a commanding position at the top of the table with two games left against Villarreal and Young Boys.
