Manchester United have one last game, this one in Moldova in the Europa League, against Sheriff Tiraspol, who last season were playing in the Champions League and beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

This time the Red Devils are looking to bounce back from a home defeat to Real Sociedad, which affected the club's run of four consecutive Premier League wins, including against Liverpool and league leaders Arsenal.

The Europa League matchday two fixture is of paramount importance, as well as being the last official game of September for the Red Devils, which means a long two weeks to prepare for their visit to the Citizens, with the Manchester Derby the next game for Erik ten Hag's side.

The gap in the Premier League with Arsenal who are leading the tournament is three points, which represents a good pace of recovery, after the two defeats at the beginning of this season, now after beating two title contenders so far this season, the next one will be an even more difficult test, because the rival is nothing more and nothing less than Pep Guardiola's team, Manchester City.

De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; McTominay, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo.

Another point is that players who arrived this season have clauses in their contract where they would lose part of their salary if they fail to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League, there are two ways to get there, one of them winning the Europa League, and the other to be in the top four places in the tournament, both are demands of the club, and they will seek to achieve this at any cost.
