Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest lineups
Erik ten Hag included the majority of his returning World Cup stars in the Carabao Cup win over Burnley but defensive duo Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane are still away.
David de Gea and Luke Shaw are expected to start after being named on the bench against the Clarets with Casemiro continuing in defence. Aaron Wan-Bissaka could retain his place at right-back, but Jadon Sancho is not likely to return yet.
Predicted Manchester United XI (4-3-3): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Casemiro, Shaw — Fred, Eriksen, Fernandes — Rashford, Martial, Elanga
Steve Cooper is battling against an ongoing injury crisis at Forest with Omar Richards, Cheikhou Kouyate and Serge Aurier ruled out, and Dean Henderson ineligible to face his parent club. Jesse Lingard will likely start on his return to Old Trafford, though.
Predicted Nottingham Forest XI (4-3-3): Smith (GK) — Williams, Worrell, Boly, Toffolo — Freuler, O’Brien, Mangala — Lingard, Awoniyi, Johnson
Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest betting odds, prediction
Both sides enjoyed a winning return after the World Cup against Championship opposition in the Carabao Cup, but United are strong favourites for this game.
Cooper’s Forest look set to be in the middle of a relegation battle in the second of the season, with United pushing for a Champions League spot and have not conceded in their past three home Premier League matches.
