MANCHESTER UNITED return to Europa League action with Group E top spot firmly in their sights – but leaders Real Sociedad have other ideas.
The Red Devils temporarily closed the gap on Sociedad having brushed aside Moldovan outfit Sheriff Tiraspol at Old Trafford.
But Sociedad restored their lead at the top of Group E with a convincing win over Omonia.
However, victory for United would see them leapfrog their Spanish opponents if the Red Devils were to score three with no reply.
And Erik Ten Hag will be desperate for his side to top the leaderboards as the group winners avoid the Champions League drop outs.

What is the team news?
Imanol Alguacil has been severely hit with injury problems ahead of this top of the table clash against Manchester United.
The Sociedad boss is expected to be without Mikel Oyarzabal, Umar Sadiq, Mohamed-Ali-Cho, Ander Martin and former Manchester City icon David Silva.
Takefusa Kubo’s dislocated shoulder from last week has also made him one of the few doubts alongside Ander Barrenetxea, Aihen Munoz and Alex Sola.
Elsewhere, Erik Ten Hag has some injury setbacks of his own as the United boss will continue to be without Raphael Varane, Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams.
However, Antony, Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial could all return to the fold having missed out on the West Ham win.
- Real Sociedad to win 9/4
- Draw 12/5
- Manchester United to win 6/5
