United are the only unbeaten side remaining in Champions League Group A amassing seven points, with Leverkusen following just in-behind on six, tonights opposition Sociedad sit bottom of the group after suffering three defeats in their opening three games. The Red Devils are currently on an excellent run of form, winning all of their last five games.
The group is still fairly close and any two of three teams still have excellent chances of progressing into the knockout stages. One of Shakhtar and Leverkusen are guaranteed to drop points tonight as they both play each other, so if we can win here we’ll be in pole position.

Venue: Anoeta Stadium

Manchester United have quite a few injury concerns going into the game. Tom Cleverley has a bit of double vision, Rafael has an ankle problem, Jonny Evans has a back injury, Michael Carrick has a calf issue and finally Danny Welbeck still has fluid on his knee. David Moyes will certainly be looking to rotate his squad.
Sociedad have three first-team members who have been ruled out of tonights game. Esteban Granero has torn an ACL, Dani Estrada has an ankle and foot problem, and Diego Ifran has ligament damage.
United will be looking to preserve their unbeaten record in San Sebastian tonight, but will have to be at their best to do so. Sociedad are a very good footballing side and should not be underestimated despite them having no points in the competition so far.
Match Prediction: Sociedad 1-1 United
A draw here would leave us on eight points with two games remaining which is a great position to be in, Sociedad are in good form at the moment too. Wayne Rooney to get our goal.
