Marouane Fellaini starts for Manchester United as they take on Real Sociedad in San Sebastian.

The Belgian lines up in a rather unorthodox midfield along with Ryan Giggs, with Shinji Kagawa and Antonio Valencia out wide. Javier Hernandez also starts, with Robin van Persie on the bench. Adnan Januzaj, somewhat surprisingly, is not in the squad.

We also see Chris Smalling at right-back and Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic as the centre-backs. Not the most exciting team in the world, but still one that should be able to get the job done.

Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea; Chris Smalling, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidić, Patrice Evra; Marouane Fellaini, Ryan Giggs; Antonio Valencia, Shinji Kagawa; Wayne Rooney; Javier Hernández.

Bench: Anders Lindegaard, Phil Jones, Anderson, Nani, Ashley Young, Robin Van Persie, Alexander Buttner.

Real Sociedad starting lineup: Bravo, C.Martínez, Mikel, Iñigo Martínez, De la Bella, M.Bergara, Pardo, Zurutuza, Griezmann, Vela, Agirretxe
