Solskjaer focused on Italian job

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he isn't thinking ahead to Manchester United's meeting with Manchester City and is solely focused on Tuesday's Champions League trip to Atalanta.

United can be backed at 2.30 to pick up a third successive win in the competition when they head to 2.87 Atalanta, while the draw is available at 3.60.

Italian job up next

The Champions League has offered some much-needed solace from United's struggles in the Premier League and they sit top of Group F with six points.

After losing to Young Boys on matchday one, the Red Devils have sealed back-to-back victories over Villarreal and Atalanta at Old Trafford.

They head back out on the road on Tuesday to take on third-placed Atalanta after beating Tottenham 3-0 on Saturday to snap a four-game winless streak in the league.
