Solskjaer reveals that every United player trained ahead of Atalanta clash

Every Manchester United first team player trained this morning ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Atalanta in our fourth Champions League Group F game.

That included Edinson Cavani who came off in the latter stages of Saturday’s 3-0 win at Tottenham grimacing.

But the Uruguayan, who started and scored alongside strike partner Cristiano Ronaldo in a 3-5-2 formation, looks set to be fit for the clash in Bergamo.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of travelling to Italy, Solskjaer said: “We are looking alright in the training session this morning. Everyone was on there. There were a couple of little twinges in the training session, but I don’t think they will be major.”

Paul Pogba will be available for the clash in Europe as he served the first of a three-match domestic suspension at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Solskjaer will know a win against Gian Piero Gasperini’s side will put United in charge of the group with two games left.

The Norwegian will have to decide whether to retain the 3-5-2 system against La Dea at the Gewiss Stadium.

With a wealth of attacking options, Solskjaer will be able to use five substitutes in the Champions League clash unlike the three currently in the Premier League.

It was only 11 days ago that the Red Devils came from two goals down against the Serie A side, to earn a dramatic 3-2 win thanks to Ronaldo, to make it a classic Champions League comeback under the lights at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer will be targeting two wins a row following the chastening 5-0 mauling against Liverpool.

United will hope that Cavani and Ronaldo who have previously bagged goals for fun in Italy, shine against Atalanta and continue the positive momentum ahead of facing Manchester City on Saturday.
