Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a 25-man squad for the flight to Bergamo as the Reds prepare to take on Atalanta in the Champions League.

The Group F fixture represents a first-ever visit to the Gewiss Stadium as Ole's men look to strengthen our position at the top of the table, ahead of the penultimate and final games against Villarreal and Young Boys respectively.

As expected, Paul Pogba is included as his suspension only covers domestic competitions. Saturday's Manchester derby at Old Trafford will be the second of the three matches he must sit out, after his sending off during the defeat to Liverpool.

Amad will be delighted to be on the trip as he returns to his former club. The youngster made his comeback from injury for the Under-23s at the weekend, his first appearance of the campaign after being involved in the Olympics with Ivory Coast.

Anthony Martial is also in the squad as he aims for a first United outing since he scored in the 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford last month.

There must be at least one change to the starting line-up to the one that beat Tottenham 3-0 last time out, with Victor Lindelof not travelling after picking up a knock in training earlier today. Ole has options to fill the three centre-back slots if he decides to stick with that formation, with Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw among those who could slot in.


David De Gea, Dean Henderson, Tom Heaton.

Defenders: Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Alex Telles, Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Midfielders: Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek.

Forwards: Amad, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho.
