We're all set for another hectic week at Manchester United, as European football makes its return.

The Reds are back in UEFA Europa League action this week as we take on Real Sociedad in the last-32 of the competition. The first team also have a Premier League home game to look forward to, with Newcastle United visiting the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday.

Throw in a couple of press conferences, anniversaries and birthdays and it's all set up for another busy week in the world of Manchester United…

MONDAY

We'll look back at the 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns, where United and West Brom shared the points on Sunday.

Monday also means the release of another episode of UTD Podcast. This time it’s former United defender Danny Simpson telling his story from his time at the club. You can find the episode on the podcast streaming platform of your preference from 17:00 GMT.

TUESDAY

The Reds will be putting in the hard work at the Aon Training Complex ahead of the return of European football on Thursday, when United will fly out to Turin to face Spanish side Real Sociedad. Travel restrictions prevent the first leg from being played in San Sebastian, but we are set to host the Basque outfit at Old Trafford, as normal, next week.

WEDNESDAY

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will face the media ahead of the Real Sociedad tie. You can keep track of everything the boss says from 13:00 GMT on MUTV, ManUtd.com and in the Official App.

THURSDAY

We’re back in Europa League action at 17:55 GMT - follow the pre-match build-up on MUTV from 16:50 GMT.

FRIDAY

Ole will once again address the media as we turn our attention towards Sunday's encounter with Newcastle.

As we enter the weekend, we celebrate the 111th anniversary of the first game ever to be played at Old Trafford. In 1910, Liverpool were our first opponents - although the Merseysiders ran out 4-3 winners.

European Cup winner Paddy Crerand turns 82 on Friday. Happy birthday, Paddy!
