Confirmed - Manchester United line-up v Real Sociedad - Ferdinand in, van Persie out

Real Sociedad Anoeta

Manchester United can move onto the magical ten point mark if they win at Real Sociedad this evening, kick-off from Spain at 19:45 GMT.

Starting Team: De Gea, Smalling, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Fellaini, Giggs, Kagawa, Rooney, Hernandez

Subs: Lindegaard, Jones, Buttner, Anderson, Nani, Young, Van Persie

Manchester United managed to scramble to a 1-0 win in the reverse of this fixture at Old Trafford thanks to an own goal. David Moyes will be hoping for a much more emphatic performance.

United should be confident as the only points they have dropped in the group stage so far came away at Shakhtar Donetsk and they go into the game off the back of a good win against Fulham last weekend.

Moyes had some big selection dilemmas ahead of this game, with United enjoying one of the largest squads of top quality players in the Premier League as well as the Champions League.

Sociedad are still searching for their first point in the group stage this season, having lost all three of their matches so far. The United back four should be confident of holding out as Sociedad have managed just a single goal.

What’s your prediction for the match?
