Preview: Manchester United vs. Real Sociedad

Sports Mole previews Wednesday's Champions League clash as Manchester United host Real Sociedad in Group A.

Manchester United can keep up their unbeaten start to this season's Champions League when they welcome Real Sociedad to Old Trafford in Group A on Wednesday.

David Moyes's side currently top the table after taking four points from their opening two matches.

However, there is sure to be a feeling of unease around the 'Theatre of Dreams' considering the team's shaky form in the Premier League.

United dropped yet more points on Saturday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at home.

Sociedad arrive in Manchester on the back of two consecutive defeats in Europe, but they are likely to be buoyed by a 2-1 win over Valencia in La Liga at the weekend.

Tom Cleverley remains sidelined through injury for United, while the Spaniards should be without Esteban Granero and Dani Estrada.

Sports Mole says: 2-0
