Solskjaer

made a few changes, leaving

,

Jadon Sancho

, and

Juan Mata

on the bench, with

Marcus Rashford

starting,

Fred

partnered by

McTominay

in midfield.

“The last few games we’ve looked a little bit open. We’ve been too easy to play through on counter-attacks,”

the manager told

BT Sport

.

“Today we’ve picked a team that will give us legs and energy. Our fans will also want to see us on the front foot.

“It’ll be nice for [Marcus Rashford] to play football freely without a niggle on his back or shoulders. The last few months he’s been carrying an injury. You’ll see a smile now, and Marcus enjoying football is a brilliant sight to see.”

The Italians are currently at the top of Group F, having made it to the knockout stage in each of their other two Champions League campaigns.

“The last two or three seasons Atalanta have been scoring close to 100 goals in Serie A, so we will have to defend really well. Plus we want to hopefully be on the attack,”

concluded Solskjaer
