18:00 GMT: Ronaldo believes Premier League players are more honest

Cristiano Ronaldo played in Serie A for three seasons with Juventus, but he is delighted to be back in the Premier League in the red of Manchester United. The Portuguese forward believes that players in England's top flight are more honest and are not as harsh in their challenges as in other leagues.

"[In the Premier League] the players are more honest... they don't kick you so much," Ronaldo told DAZN. "I'm happy to be back, I returned two months ago and I'm feeling good. I'm still readjusting."

Playing against a familiar foe in Atalanta, will Ronaldo be in for some rough treatment against the Serie A sides?

17:00 GMT: Atalanta vs Manchester United preview

Manchester United fought from two goals behind to beat Atalanta at Old Trafford when they last met in the Champions League, and they'll go head to head again this midweek in Bergamo in one of the most interesting Matchday 4 fixtures of this year's group stage.

Gian Piero Gasperini's Nerazzurri will be hoping to get their revenge against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Premier League outfit, but they are yet to get up to full speed in Serie A this season. Notoriously slow starters under Gasperini, Atalanta are having a typically mixed season so far, but will be hoping to claim three points against Manchester United to put themselves in a strong position in Champions League Group F.

Manchester United, meanwhile, bounced back from a 5-0 humiliation against Liverpool to beat Tottenham 3-0 over the weekend and will be keen to build on that momentum and to strengthen their grip on top spot in Group F.
