Depleted United in a must-win game against Sociedad
United are visitors at the Reale Arena on Thursday night to take on LaLiga side Real Sociedad in a top-of-the-table clash in the UEL.
The Red Devils are looking to pick an automatic ticket to the round of 16 but will face Sociedad without the aforementioned three key players.
The absence of the trio has made Erik ten Hag’s task more difficult as the Reds must beat their host by two goals to finish top and avoid the UEL playoffs with a Champions League team.
However, the Dutchman has named youngsters Facundo Pellistri, Shola Shoretire, and Alejandro Garnacho, who will be hoping to get a chance to prove themselves in the important tie.
