Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be available for Manchester United's Champions League clash against Atalanta next week after the club won an appeal against his two-match ban on Friday.

Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card in the defeat against Young Boys in September, with UEFA initially handing him a one-game ban. The punishment was later doubled after his action was deemed as "rough play".
