Manchester United’s confirmed XI against Real Sociedad – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United’s line-up against Real Sociedad has been confirmed, as the Red Devils look to top their Europa League group and avoid a nightmare draw in the next round.

The lineup features a couple of surprise inclusions for Erik ten Hag’s side, but the backline more or less picks itself.

David de Gea starts in goal, as he has done every minute of this season under Erik ten Hag.

With Raphael Varane still out, Victor Lindelof starts alongside Lisandro Martínez in central defence.

Diogo Dalot starts at right back, with Luke Shaw filling the opposite position.

Casemiro is set to operate at the base of Man United’s midfield, with Bruno Fernandes and the surprise inclusion of Donny van de Beek ahead of him. Christian Eriksen also starts.

Alejandro Garnacho makes his debut for the Red Devils for the second time, after both Jadon Sancho and Antony were ruled out due to illness and injury respectively.

With Anthony Martial injured, Cristiano Ronaldo starts at the top.

Marcus Rashford is rested.

With United looking to advance to the round of 16 with a win tonight, the pressure is on.

Qualifying through this match would also ease the post-World Cup schedule a bit, with an additional match played by the second-placed teams.

The match kicks off at 17:45 UK time and is expected to be an exciting fixture.
