Fresh from ending Arsenal’s perfect start to the season, Manchester United begin their Europa League campaign in Group E versus Real Sociedad at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

The Red Devils saw off their capital counterparts 3-1 at the weekend, while their Spanish visitors claimed a point from a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

While £85.4m signing Antony did display some of the flashy footwork that has been the subject of online ridicule against Arsenal, the silky Brazilian also demonstrated his proficiency in front of goal to help the Red Devils continue their winning run at the expense of Arsenal’s.

Antony curled home a delightful debut goal before a threatening Arsenal eventually got their reward through Bukayo Saka, but the Gunners’ defence folded as Marcus Rashford came up with a second-half brace for the rejuvenated Red Devils.

Having now recovered from their abysmal start to competitive proceedings under Erik ten Hag, Man United enter the first matchday of the Europa League having won four on the bounce in the top flight, with both Arsenal and Liverpool falling victim to their superiority at Old Trafford.

Man United will now aim to continue their perfect streak of making it out of the group stage in the Europa League, and they have gone as far as the semi-finals in each of their last three appearances in the second-tier competition, but Villarreal’s penalty prowess won them the title at the expense of the Red Devils in 2021.

Last season’s European adventure also ended abruptly for Man United as they fell to Atletico Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League, but the Theatre of Dreams faithful will not be expecting Omonia or Sheriff Tiraspol to give their side much trouble later on in Group E.

As for the visitors, French centre-back Robin Le Normand has not made the squad for Thursday’s game due to a stress fracture in his foot, while Diego Rico, Mikel Oyarzabal, Martin Merquelanz and Carlos Fernandez are all unavailable as well. Le Normand’s spot in the heart of defence should be filled by Aritz Elustondo.

Mohamed-Ali Cho and Alexander Sorloth will both be fearing for their places at the tip of the attack following Sadiq’s goal off the bench last time out, while David Silva is expected to occupy the number 10 role upon his return to Manchester.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Elanga; Ronaldo

Real Sociedad possible starting lineup:
Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Elustondo, Munoz; Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino; Silva; Sadiq, Sorloth
