    FT: Man Utd 3-2 Atalanta!! All over in Manchester and the hosts, who were 0-2 down in the first half, fought back brilliantly and goals from Rashford, Maguire and Ronaldo made it 3-2. Atalanta gave it a great shot, but they clearly tired towards the end. Beaten, but definitely not disgraced. Stewards have to stop a fan trying to get Ronaldo's shirt post game. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
