Pics: Sociedad stalemate

Manchester United edged closer to the Champions League knockout stages after a hard-earned 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad on Tuesday.

With one eye on Sunday's vital domestic clash with Arsenal, David Moyes’ starting line-up was missing Robin van Persie, as well as Michael Carrick, Jonny Evans and Rafael, who didn't make the trip to Spain.

There was plenty for club photographers John and Matt Peters to capture as the Reds pressed for a second-half winner, but Moyes' men couldn't find a breakthrough, meaning they remain a point clear at the top of Group A.

Our gallery features every twist and turn, as United stayed on course in Europe.
