Manchester are hosting Real Sociedad at Old Trafford tonight aiming to finish off the Europa League last-32 tie, having won 4-0 in the first leg which was played in Turin due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Bruno Fernandes scored twice before Marcus Rashford and Daniel James added two more to put one foot in the next round, while they also were boosted by the senior debut of new teenage signing Amad.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope for another professional performance in what is a game United are expected to win, having built up such a convincing advantage in the opening encounter. Several key players are set to be rested as the manager takes advantage of a rare chance to take the foot off the gas.
