Manchester United failed to beat West Brom in the Premier League at the weekend. Next up, they will collide against Real Sociedad in the first KO round of the Europa League.
Man Utd have never lost a Round of 32 tie in the Europa League but should not take Sociedad lightly. The Spanish side are currently 5th in the La Liga and have won their last two fixtures.
As far as the team news is concerned, record signing Paul Pogba remains sidelined with injury and therefore, we can expect McTominay and Fred to start again in the midfield.
Gary Neville has recently criticized the central defensive partnership of Maguire and Lindelof but the Red Devils lack quality options, so, the duo might get the nod to start again in front of De Gea.
In the full back positions, Wan-Bissaka must start in the RB role and Shaw should feature ahead of Telles in the LB role.
In the attacking midfield, Man Utd could make one change. Mason Greenwood should replace Anthony Martial. Marcus Rashford should switch side to start on the left flank.
Bruno Fernandes, who scored another brilliant goal at the weekend, must start as the main man in the hole behind center forward, Cavani.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Real Sociedad:
