Why Nottingham Forest Can Beat Man United
Nottingham Forest is in serious danger of being relegated. The club is 18th in the Premier League standings with 27 points. Nottingham last won in early February in a match against Leeds United.
Nottingham is currently on a nine-game winless streak, securing draws against Manchester City, Everton, and Wolverhampton over that stretch. They are hoping for a turn of tides as they have a 5-6-4 record on home ground. They have made 19 goals in the City Ground in Nottingham. During their last game, Cooper’s side managed just two shots on target in the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
Nottingham Forest has a promising goal scorer in Brennan Johnson. The 21-year-old forward leads the team with eight goals, after scoring 16 last season. Because of his success, Johnson reportedly has drawn the interest of Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool for a possible transfer. Moreover, a change could be made upfront with Taiwo Awoniyi coming in.
Forest’s large squad has a number of injured players, with Omar Richards, 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. Serge Aurier, Renan Lodi, Moussa Niakhate, and Ryan Yates are doubtful to make an appearance.
For the Tricky Trees, Keylor Navas is expected to start as the goalkeeper. Morgan Gibbs-White, Orel Mangala, Jonjo Shelvey, and Remo Freuler are going to take the midfield roles.

Manchester United enter this game with a three-game unbeaten run. They would have had a three-game winning run if they have not surrendered two own-goals in their match against Spanish club Sevilla. Marcel Sabitzer scored a brace during that match.

Man United has beaten Nottingham Forest three times across all competitions this season, outscoring Nottingham Forest 8-0. In 11 all-time Premier League meetings, the Red Devils have eight wins, two draws, and only one loss. The Red Devils have a 6-2-6 away record, scoring 17 goals and surrendering 29.
Manchester United is without center-backs Lisandro Martinez, who is out for the season, and Raphael Varane. Marcus Rashford remains absent with a groin problem
Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw could return as starters. In addition, Casemiro is expected to be back in the lineup for Manchester United. The 31-year-old holding midfielder missed four games while serving a suspension for his second red card of the season. His return is a big boost for United as the team counts on him to sit in front of the defense, build up play when in possession and thwart other teams’ attacks. Erik Ten Hag will have to choose between Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial up front.
Final Nottingham Forest-Man United Prediction & Pick
