Nottingham Forest have not scored a goal in the last decade against United, who come on the back of a disappointing loss against Spurs in the previous league match.

Man Utd vs Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineups and News

Man Utd – Can the Red Devils Overcome a Lacklustre Start?

Manchester United have been less than impressive in the first two games of the campaign. After getting quite lucky with the win over Wolves, United went missing for the majority of the recent game against Tottenham. After the loss at the hands of Spurs, United cannot afford to slip up further – even if it is the early few weeks of the season. Erik ten Hag has plenty of underperforming players in the squad and this even includes new signings like Mason Mount, who has failed to make a major impression in the first two games. A return to Old Trafford, though, will be a welcome relief for United at this moment.

Team news: Man Utd

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has to do without plenty of players for the upcoming match. Summer signing Mason Mount will be the high-profile absentee, as he is ruled out for the next couple of weeks. Tyrell Malacia, Rasmus Højlund, Amad Diallo, Kobbie Mainoo, and Tom Heaton are the other players who are definitely ruled out of this game. Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire will be undergoing late fitness tests to decide their participation, although the latter did not feature in the squad against Spurs last weekend.

Man Utd Predicted Lineups (4-2-3-1):

Andre Onana, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Diogo Dalot, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho

Nottingham Forest – Forest Looking to Avoid Another Loss at Old Trafford

Nottingham Forest have been showing plenty of fighting spirit in the first two matches of the season. After almost grabbing a late equaliser against Arsenal, Forest repeated the trick against Sheffield United to get the first win of the season. The away matches were a very big problem for Forest in the previous campaign but there are signs of improvement on this front. Serge Aurier’s performance from the wingback position was a big advantage for Forest in the win over the Blades, but it remains to be seen if he will be given the same offensive freedom against United.
