    Time to bounce back…

    Last time out United played a real game of two halves against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

    United looked really impressive in the first half, with the front three of Sancho, Rashford and Martial proving too much to handle for the Villa defence.

    United went into the break 2-0 up, and looked comfortable, with most spectators thinking that was job done.

    But in the second half, Steven Gerrard made some attacking changes, one of which was Leon Bailey, and they managed to pull the game back.

    United will have been disappointed with the 2-2 final score, and will looking to put in a much better performance over the 90 minutes today.

    Welcome to Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid!

    Hello! Welcome to SunSport's coverage of Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid!

    This is Man Utd's penultimate game of pre-season, as they travel to Norway and then back to Old Trafford to play two games in two days before the opening game of the Premier League season next weekend.

    This morning they come up against a stern Atletico Madrid, who will pose a bit more of a threat than previous opponents Aston Villa on paper.

    Against Villa, it was a real game of two halfs, as United looked utterly brilliant for the first 45, and then Leon Bailey changed the game for the Villians.

    Today we would expect United to be on their A game, as they don't have long to prepare for the opening day where they face Brighton.

    United fans will hope to see their new signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez in action today, and will be looking forward to see Ronaldo returning tomorrow…
