Manchester United dominated and defeated Spurs in their own backyard and earned their first victory in five Premier League games.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer changed the system/formation from 4-2-3-1 to 3-4-1-2 and it worked wonders against the north London side. We were brilliant in the attack but more importantly, the defense was rock solid. Therefore, it will not be any surprise if we see the same setup tomorrow night against Atalanta.
The Norwegian coach could make three changes to the squad that featured vs Tottenham on Saturday. The likes of Fred and McTominay might be rested.
Record signing Paul Pogba was suspended from the Premier League game and we can expect him to return for the Champions League contest against the Italian side. On the other hand, veteran midfielder, Nemanja Matic should return to start with the French international in the center of the park.
With the return of Varane, our back-line looked really strong and the Les Bleus center half must start with Lindelof and Maguire in the defense. In the wing-back positions, the likes of Wan-Bissaka and Shaw would likely retain their starting places.
In the attack, Bruno Fernandes is irreplaceable in the No.10 role. In the strike-force, both Ronaldo and Cavani scored goals vs Spurs but Solskjaer could bench one of the veterans in place of Rashford. The England international may replace the Uruguayan center forward.
Here is Man Utd’s probable 3-4-1-2 XI vs Atalanta:
