Man United without quartet for Real Sociedad clash

Manchester United will be without four players for tonight's Europa League round of 32 second leg against Real Sociedad.

The Red Devils registered a comfortable 4-0 win over Sociedad in the away leg at the Anoeta Stadium and they already have one foot in the last 16.

Ahead of the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided some team news where he confirmed that as many as four players will be sidelined.

Paul Pogba is out until March with a thigh problem and besides him, Scott McTominay, Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek are unavailable.

McTominay (knock), Cavani and Van de Beek (both calf) have all returned to training after their respective injuries but they are not being risked.

Solskjaer has the option of playing young players such as Amad Diallo and Shola Shoretire but he has hinted that they may only start on the bench.

The fixture could see reserve players like Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe and Juan Mata get rare starting opportunities with the significant first leg lead.
