Manchester United managed to get back on track and put a comprehensive performance together against a struggling Tottenham Hotspur side to ensure that they would end the week with a victory and ease some of the pressure from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shoulders.
However, as anyone who knows anything about football, there is no time to savour the victories achieved once the night is out as the next day will require the team to focus on their next opponent. Indeed, with Manchester United competing in the UEFA Champions League, there really hasn’t been too much time.
The Red Devils will travel to Italy for their Group F Matchday 4 fixture with Atalanta on Tuesday night and will be wanting to try and solidify their position as the group leaders. Many who look for the best betting sites at sportwetten-vergleich.at will be expecting the club to get the three points, but we all know it is going to be far from easy.
Of course, the game at Old Trafford was extremely entertaining for neutrals, although fans of both sides will have experienced the emotional rollercoaster that football can provide. Having been 2-0 down, the hosts managed to acquire a 3-2 victory after Cristiano Ronaldo (who else?) scored the winner with a late header.
With the quick turnaround between games, there will be some eyes on the availability of players, with the injury report not seemingly too bad, whilst Paul Pogba’s suspension only applies to domestic games after he was shown red in the devastating defeat to Liverpool.
The only real doubts that Solskjaer may have when looking at who he could possibly name in his squad for the trip to Atalanta are forwards, Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial.
The Uruguayan managed to score in the 3-0 victory over Spurs at the weekend but he had to be withdrawn from the game with an apparent injury. However, all signs point to it being cramp rather than an actual issue, so it would seem that he has a strong chance of making an appearance.
The French striker, though, remains unclear at the moment after picking up an injury whilst on international duty, as he missed the game against Spurs, but it is thought he could be ready and is in contention.
Raphael Varane made a timely comeback in that win and is expected to be available once again, whilst Amad Diallo could feature against his old club after making a comeback in the Under-23s game at the weekend after a spell out on the sidelines.
