The UEFA Europa League is starting tonight, while Arsenal, AS Roma, Real Betis, Manchester United, and many other teams will play in their respective matches. However, English giant Manchester United are ready to start their journey in the UEFA Europa League tonight. Tonight they will take on Real Sociedad at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have made a tremendous comeback after losing the first two games in the EPL. The last match they lost was against Brentford, where the Red Devils conceded four goals. But since then, Man United have won straight four games in the EPL, where they beat giant teams such as Liverpool and Arsenal. Now the Reds are in 6th on the point table.
On the other side, Real Sociedad are not in their best form in the La Liga. With seven points, the Spanish side is standing in 6th. However, Real Sociedad have already played four games, where they won only two matches.

According to the manager, Anthony Martial will not play tonight. However, the remaining players are fit and ready to play tonight.
Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t been in the starting XI for the last four games of Man United. But he is likely to start tonight with Sancho and Antony, the new signing of Man United. Erik ten Hag, the manager of Man United, has talked about the players in the press conference. He said,
“Maybe I cannot keep them [the players] all happy every game but everyone gets their game-time if they perform well, it’s quite clear. But what I say, we need everyone – we have a lot of games to cover. There is a lot coming in front of us, and the national teams of course – the World Cup – but also all of the cups in England. The Europa League, where we are now getting in, and, of course, the Premier League.”
