The Man United boss is approaching his third anniversary in charge at Old Trafford and has one of the strongest squads in Europe at his disposal. Yet United (opens in new tab) continue to underwhelm and are in danger of slipping out of the Premier League title race before the midway point of the campaign. They are also up against it in their bid to qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League, with one (fortuitous) win and one loss up to now.

Saturday's 4-2 defeat by Leicester (opens in new tab) provided a useful snapshot of where United are at. The individual quality in the team allowed them to score two goals against good opposition, with Mason Greenwood's stunning opener a highlight. But United did not have any discernible strategy in or out of possession, and they were ruthlessly exploited by a well-drilled, well-coached Leicester team who arrived at the King Power Stadium with a clear plan.

Unlike their title rivals, United are not more than the sum of their parts. The buck stops with the manager in situations like this, and although Solskjaer does not appear to be in any imminent danger of losing his job, results must improve quickly.

A home game against Atalanta (opens in new tab) has all the hallmarks of a potential banana skin. The Italian side are beginning to click into gear in Serie A. They were excellent in a 4-1 thrashing of Empoli at the weekend and will not fear a trip to Old Trafford. Gian Piero Gasperini is a fantastic coach and his team play on the front foot wherever they go. United have better individual players in their ranks, but as they have discovered in recent weeks that is not always enough.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 2 (opens in new tab) in the UK.

Use a VPN to watch a Manchester United v Atalanta live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal stream that decides to buffer at the worst possible moment. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
