Manchester United dealt major blow as Varane injured vs Atalanta
Manchester United have been dealt a major blow on the personnel front during their meeting with Atalanta on Tuesday evening.
Atalanta vs Man United
Man United are, of course, currently locked in Champions League action with Serie A outfit, Atalanta.
The Red Devils headed into the evening’s action top of their Champions League group.
As a result, a win over Atalanta would hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. some much-needed breathing room and all but guarantee their spot in this campaign’s Champions League knockout rounds.
However, at the time of writing, this does not look set to be the case, with the visitors currently behind thanks to a strike from Josip Ilicic:
Atalanta lead Man Utd! ⚫️🔵
A familiar situation arises for the Red Devils once again!
Just like at Old Trafford in matchday three, there’s work for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men to do in Bergamo… pic.twitter.com/QMgI8KpyGa

Raphael Varane has been substituted after picking up an injury.
Mason Greenwood comes on in place of the Frenchman.
