Manchester United have been very inconsistent throughout the season. Injury crises have been one of the major issues for Man United’s inconsistent performance.

At the beginning of the season, they had started below average because most of the players were out of the squad due to their injury. However, when some of the key players returned, the Red Devils showed a great fighting spirit and won some back-to-back games. 

Following four wins in a row in the Premier League, Manchester United suffered a defeat on Saturday against Fulham FC. Alex Iwobi’s late winner secured all three points for Fulham FC at Old Trafford. However, the Red Devils are now desperate to get back on the winning track with tomorrow’s FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest.

Winning the league title has been almost impossible this season for Manchester United as they are 16 points behind the table topper, Liverpool. But the Red Devils still have a chance to win the FA Cup and should win against Nottingham Forest to book their place in the quarterfinal. 

Stats & Facts

  • Nottingham Forest have a very good record against Manchester United in the FA Cup. They have defeated Manchester United in four of their last five FA Cup games – the only exception was in 1989-1990 when the Red Devils secured a 1-0 success against the Forest.
  • Nottingham Forest have already defeated the Red Devils this season, as they won their last league meeting with the Red Devils by a 2-1 margin in December. However, a win would see Nottingham Forest winning back-to-back games against Manchester United across all competitions for the first time since 1984.
  • Manchester United have reached the FA Cup quarter-finals 47 times – the highest number along with Everton. 
  • Manchester United have lost only one of their last 10 games in all competitions, while Nottingham Forest have lost four of their previous 10 games in all competitions.

Team News

Several Nottingham players got serious injuries in their participation in the AFCON Cup. Ibrahim Sangare, Willy Boly, and Ola Aina will be out of the squad for an unspecified time for their injury they picked up in the AFCON Cup. Meanwhile, Chris Wood will also miss the match because of his hamstring injury.

Rasmus Hojlund, who has been Man United’s top scorer so far this season, is out of the team through his injury. He will be unavailable for two more weeks, while Luke Shaw will also miss the FA Cup game for a calf injury.

Additionally, the Red Devils will be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Anthony Martial, and Mason Mount due to their respective injury.

Possible Lineup for Nottingham Forest:

Sels; Montiel, Felipe, Murillo, Niakhate; Danilo, Dominguez; Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Origi

Possible Lineup for Manchester United:

Onana; Dalot, Varane, Evans, Lindelof; Casemiro, Mainoo; Forson, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford

Prediction: Forest 1-2 Man United

Except for Man United’s defeat against Fulham FC, the Red Devils were in excellent form. They had won all their previous five meetings in the league. However, they will be desperate to get back on the winning track when they face off against Nottingham Forest away from home.

Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, will have the home advantage. But if Man United can give their best, it will be really difficult for the Forest to win against the Red Devils
