Manchester United are preparing for tonight’s Europa League clash with Real Sociedad.

The tie seems over with United 4-0 up ahead of the home leg at Old Trafford.

There is still a professional job to be done, although the scoreline does mean United can rotate a bit.

Two young players in line to feature are youngsters Shola Shoretire and Amad Diallo.

Even if the pair do not start the fixture, they should play some part from the substitute’s bench. Both Shoretire and Diallo played a part in training on Thursday.

United’s camp seemed in good spirits, even out of form Anthony Martial raised a smile.

 

The Frenchman is looking to correct a run of just three goals in his last 16 games.

United just need to avert disaster to get through to the next round, with the draw to take place on Friday.

It’s likely Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will both be rested for tonight’s game, with a crucial Premier League fixture to prepare for on Sunday against Chelsea.
