Solskjaer reveals decision over Harry Maguire for Atalanta after selection error

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested Harry Maguire will start for Manchester United on Wednesday against Atalanta despite his horror show against Leicester City.

Maguire missed United’s last two games before the international break in addition to England’s World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

But after just one training session, he returned to the starting XI at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, enduring a tough afternoon back at his former club as United crashed to a 4-2 defeat.

While Solskjaer admitted selecting the England international  against the Foxes was a ‘bad decision’, he could start again on Wednesday with Raphael Varane still unavailable

Anthony Martial is set to miss out too but Edinson Cavani and Fred will return to the squad after international duty ruled them out on Saturday.

‘Anthony joined in training today but he’s still not fit enough to join us [for the match,’ Solskjaer told MUTV.

‘Harry’s not had any reaction so he’s fine and good to go. We didn’t lose anyone else from the game through injury at the weekend, so we’re, more or less, a full squad.

‘Raphael is still not with us but Edinson and Fred are back available which is good for us.’

United will also have Aaron Wan-Bissaka available.

The right-back was handed a two-game ban following his red card against Young Boys but saw that reduced to one game upon appeal.
