Manchester United eased into the Europa league last 16 after a 0-0 home draw with Real Sociedad on Thursday completed a 4-0 aggregate win over the Spanish side in their round of 32 clash.

With one eye on Sunday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started striker Marcus Rashford and defender Harry Maguire on the bench.

Sociedad missed a 13th-minute penalty as Mikel Oyarzabal blazed his spot-kick wide before a lethargic United came to life and Bruno Fernandes rattled the crossbar with a swerving shot from 15 meters.

Modibo Sagnan hit the woodwork for Sociedad with a close-range header shortly after the break before United substitute Axel Tuanzebe had a goal disallowed for Victor Lindelof’s foul on Jon Bautista.

Fernandes made way for Rashford at the interval but United largely went through the motions in the second half as they kept the visitors at bay, with striker Anthony Martial enduring another frustrating evening.
