Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Real Sociedad

Sports Mole rounds up all of Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Europa League last-32 clash with Real Sociedad.

Manchester United resume their quest for European success on Thursday evening when they take on Spanish giants Real Sociedad in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 clash in Turin.

The Red Devils dropped down to Europe's secondary competition after finishing third in their Champions League group, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's charges are certainly one of the favourites to go all the way.

However, the Norwegian's side could not get the better of a relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion at the weekend as Sam Allardyce's men held United to a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's injury and suspension news ahead of their Europa League first leg.

Edinson Cavani

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed at his pre-match press conference that Edinson Cavani would be one of two players not making the trip for this game due to muscular injuries.

As is the case with Cavani, Donny van de Beek will play no part in this game due to a muscular problem, but it would have been a surprise to see him start anyway.

Paul Pogba was forced off with a thigh problem in the pulsating 3-3 draw with Everton on February 6, and he will not be taking to the pitch again before the month is over.

Man United have no players suspended for the first leg.
