Erik ten Hag takes charge of Manchester United in a European match for the first time as they host Real Sociedad tonight in their opening Europa League group-stage match. After beating Premier League table-toppers Arsenal last time out to make it four wins on the bounce, confidence is high at United after an impressive turnaround.
The club reached the final of the Europa League in 2021, losing on penalties to Villarreal, and made the semi-finals the year before when they were then beaten by eventual winners Sevilla. Ten Hag will see the competition as potentially United’s best chance of silverware this season, and with it a return to the Champions League.
Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro are all pushing for starts, against a Real Sociedad side who sit seventh in La Liga after a reasonable start to the season. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below!
