Real Sociedad haven't been as impressive as hoped on their return to the Champions League; still sitting on zero points halfway through the group stages. Their hopes of qualifying for the knockouts are all but over, though they've still got pride to play for, welcoming Group A leaders Manchester United to San Sebastián on Tuesday.
United have been surprisingly solid so far, having carefully navigated their way through a group filled with potential banana skins. David Moyes' side are currently a point clear of Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the group after picking up seven points from their opening three matches, and could move to within a point of the knockout stages if results go their way on Tuesday.
However, they have a string of early injury doubts after their victory against Fulham in the Premier League on the weekend. Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Jonny Evans, Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Rafael all face late fitness tests, with Darren Fletcher their only certain absentee. Real Sociedad have five players definitely sidelined, with the most noticeable being Markel Bergara and Carlos Vela, who are both out suspended.
Real Sociedad injuries and suspensions
Out: Daniel Estrada (ankle), Esteban Granero (knee), Diego Ifrán (knee), Markel Bergara (suspended), Carlos Vela (suspended). In doubt: None.
Manchester United injuries and suspensions
Out: Darren Fletcher (illness). In doubt: Patrice Evra (knock), Michael Carrick (leg), Jonny Evans (back), Tom Cleverley (double vision), Danny Welbeck (knee), Rafael (ankle).
