From one David Moyes Cup to another. Two of the teams that were once managed by the Scotsman played on Sunday (Manchester United beat West Ham United 1-0), and two more will clash on Thursday, when United visit Real Sociedad. Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has taken the UEFA Europa League group stages quite seriously, all along, as he’s been fielding some strong teams.
We think he will again here, as he takes on a Spanish side that has conceded only once in their five UEL group stage matches.

A lot of selection issues here for the Dutchman to contend with, especially in the back line. However, he also has plenty of options in the final third, and the middle of the park. Here’s what we think he’s going to go with here.
