Manchester United will want to start their Europa League campaign with a win when they play against Real Sociedad today, MySportDab reports.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team travelled to Italy after the Europa League first-leg of their round of 32 tie was moved due to Spain strict travel restrictions.
United have failed to win in their last nine European matches against Spanish club since a surprise 1-0 win against Celta Vigo in the Europa League 2016-17 semi-final.
Manchester United Team News
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already confirmed that Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek will both miss the game.
Meanwhile, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay are still doubts with Paul Pogba also unavailable.
Goalkeeper – Henderson
Henderson is more likely to start today ahead of De Gea in the Europa League.
De Gea has started almost all of United’s Premier League matches this season.
Defence – Telles, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka
Luke Shaw could get some rest today and be replaced by Alex Telles in the Line-up.
With Eric Bailly not fully fit, Maguire and Lindelof should partner at the centre of the defence.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka keeps his place on the right wing.
Midfield: Fred, Matic, Fernandes
With Scott McTominay a doubt for the game, Matic could return to the team.
Fred has proved his worth in midfield for United this season and is more likely to start today.
Fernandes remains a player Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not like to drop to the bench.
Attack – Greenwood, Rashford, Diallo
In my opinion, Amad Diallo could start today and make his first team debut because Anthony Martial is a doubt for the match.
Mason Greenwood should also join the attack after signing a new contract recently.
Marcus Rashford will no doubt start for Manchester United vs Real Sociedad.
Real Sociedad Vs Man Utd Kick-off?
