Nottingham Forest vs Man Utd

Manchester United travel to Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon looking to put a disappointing result in Europe to one side.

The Red Devils took a 2-0 lead against La Liga strugglers Sevilla but a second-half collapse saw the visitors draw level as both Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane were forced off with injuries.

Forest, meanwhile, are 18th in the Premier League and without a win since early February. Victory here, however, could lift Steve Cooper’s side as high as 15th.

Here’s what you need to know ahead of Sunday’s fixture.

Nottingham Forest team news

Forest’s large squad has a number of injured players, with Chris Wood, Willy Boly and Dean Henderson among the confirmed absentees. There are further doubts over the availability of Cheikhou Kouyate, Renan Lodi, Gustavo Scarpa and Emmanuel Dennis.

Cooper’s side managed just two shots on target in the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa and a change could be made up front with Taiwo Awoniyi coming in.

Nottingham Forest predicted lineup (3-4-2-1): Navas; Worrall, Felipe, Niakhate; Williams, Shelvey, Freuler, Toffolo; Gibbs-White, Johnson; Awoniyi.

Man Utd team news

Casemiro is available for domestic duty again having served his suspension but manager Erik ten Hag has a number of issues to deal with after Thursday’s draw with Sevilla.

Martinez and Varane may miss out, leaving the returning Luke Shaw to partner Harry Maguire in central defence. Marcus Rashford is already out, leaving Ten Hag to choose between Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial up front.

Bruno Fernandes is suspended for the trip to Sevilla next week so will likely start here.

Man Utd predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Fernandes; Antony, Sabitzer, Sancho; Weghorst.

Premier League fixtures, table & top scorers

Forest may well be eyeing up a shock triumph here, with United without their first-choice centre back partnership. Cooper’s side have been decent at home but were blown away by United 3-1 at the City Ground in the Carabao Cup back in January.

The effects of a packed fixture list are becoming evident for United. They have just hit 50 games played in all competitions and have pivotal games in the Europa League and FA Cup while seeking to secure a top four spot.

The visitors should have enough attacking quality to pick up all three points.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-2 Man Utd
