Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
Nottingham Forest comes into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Gary O’Neil’s Bournemouth in the league. A first-half goal from winger Jaidon Anthony for Bournemouth was canceled out by a late second-half equalizer from attacker Sam Surridge for Nottingham Forest. Nottingham Forest is currently 13th in the league and has won two of their last five league games. Having signed a completely new squad the previous summer, Nottingham Forest has not shied away from spending some more in January. Brazilian midfielders Gustavo Scarpa and Danilo are the club’s most recent permanent acquisitions. Brennan Johnson is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
On the other hand, Manchester United lost 3-2 to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal in the league. A brace from striker Eddie Nketiah and a goal from attacker Bukayo Saka secured the win for Arsenal in a pulsating encounter. Star forward Marcus Rashford and Argentine center-back Lisandro Martinez scored the goals for Manchester United. Manchester United will put more impetus now on the EFL Cup, given their recent loss to Arsenal almost certainly extinguishes any faint hope of a title challenge. The failure by no means indicated that Manchester United played poorly, only that Arsenal played better. Manchester United will take solace from this fact. Manager Erik ten Hag deserves huge credit for the turnaround in form and fortune he has produced since his short time at the club, and the fact that his side went toe-to-toe against arguably the best side in the Premier League is a huge positive. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
