MANCHESTER UNITED return to European action this Thursday against Real Sociedad – and its not a Champions League fixture.

The Red Devils' seventh place finish last season has resulted in them featuring in the 2022/23 Europa League campaign.

However, United need to get through their group first and stubborn Spanish outfit Real Sociedad could prove to be tricky customers.
