Team News

  • David Moyes is in need of a win against Real Sociedad following the 1-1 draw with Southampton in order to ease the pressure on the Manchester United boss.
  • The Scot will be without the services of long-term absentee Darren Fletcher, while Nemanja Vidic is sidelined and will miss out.
  • Rio Ferdinand, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley are all doubtful and may not be available for Moyes for the welcome of the La Liga side.
  • Real Sociedad secured an impressive 2-1 win over Valencia at the weekend and will have been boosted by the return of Xabi Prieto from a thigh problem.
  • However, the La Liga side will be without the services of injured trio Esteban Granero, Diego Ifrán and Daniel Estrada for the trip to Manchester United.
  • Head coach Jagoba Arrasate may name an unchanged starting XI for the Champions League tie.


  • Manchester United have started the season poorly, but are unbeaten in Europe and will look to continue that record with the welcome of Real Sociedad. The Premier League champions must pick up a win here in order to ease the pressure building on manager David Moyes.
  • The La Liga side have endured a similarly tumultuous start to their domestic campaign and need to pick up a positive result if they're to stand any chance of making it through Group A. They'll be buoyed, however, in that United have lost their last 2 competitive fixtures at the hands of Spanish sides at Old Trafford.
  • However, without the services of key man Esteban Granero, United are tipped to come away with a victory here, but it's likely to be a close encounter at Old Trafford.

  • to dread: yeah, but he had made 4 interceptions, 15 clearances and 1 danger shot blocked.

  • how jones got 8.5 for no tackles at all? bias system

  • Kagawa is back!

  • Kagawa playing nothing!

  • where's RvP?

  • Kagawa is playing really well he deserves a club that will start him more often, no disrespect to United but Kagawa is too good to keep on the bench

  • Real Sociedad 2-1 Utd

  • key man esteban granero?you are joking no?since when granero was a key player for sociedad?in those 2 or 3 matches he was a substitute before got injured:-) agiretxe,ptieto, griezmann, vela, even holding midifielders bergara and zurutuza and this summer transfers seferovic are much more important players for arrasate than granero.

  • Knowing United this season, it will be a close game and Sociedad have a chance of getting a point.

  • @dread, then you're not really a United admirer

  • If Man U continue their atrocious form as of late, Real Sociedad stand a big chance

  • la real beat valencia when they were on roll this saturday , they can certainly beat united at trafford

  • Time to throw down the coat moyes, get back to your tack suits for sure u will win every game to come! And get to serious business if only u can play that squad that played aganist bayer leverkusen. but please play Kagawa

  • Hopefully la Real can regain their best form starting tonight. Causing the chosen one more problems.

  • Come on Moyes, play Kagawa and give a chance for Zaha. Man Utd win 3-0.

  • moyes you dumbass if you do not play kagawa this time I will seriously throw a shoe on you from the crowd
