Manchester United host Chelsea on Thursday night hoping to avoid a third successive English Premier League defeat.

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from a run of poor performances when they take on Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have three points after two games, following an opening day loss to Young Boys before a narrow victory against Villarreal.

Atalanta on the other hand are top of Group F with 4 points and are looking to extend their lead in a bid to qualify as group winners.

A 4-2 defeat to Leicester at the weekend extended the Red Devils’ winless run in the Premier League to three games and they need to turn their luck around.

Solskjaer could ease the speculation surrounding his position with a win, as they face an Atalanta side fresh off an emphatic 4-1 win over Empoli in Serie A.
