Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given the media an update on the team news ahead of Man United vs Atalanta.

Manchester United Football Club resume their Champions League campaign this evening, The Red Devil’s desperately need to win this home game in order to prove they’re the top dog in the group.

Atalanta provide a tough test, though, with the Serie A club more than capable of causing an upset if the Old Trafford club aren’t at their best.

Ahead of the game at the Theatre of Dreams, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed one key star will miss the game through injury. On the flip side, the gaffer could confirm that a key duo are now ready to return…

Check out what Solskjaer had to say here:

“Raphael is still not with us but Edinson and Fred are back available which is good for us.” Ole told ManUtd.com.

I’d imagine the Baby Faced Assassin will have already been preparing for this one without Varane, given the Frenchman was ruled out for a few weeks during the international break.

However, to get both El Matador and Fred back is a massive plus. The pair missed the weekend game with Leicester City due to international commitments – and both were big absences.

Whatever us fans think about Fred, Solskjaer obviously trusts him endlessly and the fact we got bullied in midfield without him against Leicester lets us all know exactly why the Baby Faced Assassin rates him so highly.

As for Cavani, I feel a little sorry for the Uruguay star. In any other season, he’d be a regular starter for this team. The fact that Cristiano Ronaldo unexpectedly returned home has changed his situation pretty significantly.

Just like last season, I’d expect Cavani to feature more as the season goes on, but at this very moment, he probably feels very frustrated at the situation. Hopefully, he starts at Old Trafford tomorrow and goes out there with a point to prove.

Can Man United win this game vs Atalanta with the players available? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
