PL PREVIEW: Manchester United vs. Nottingham Forest – Prediction, Team News, Lineups


Manchester United will be looking to pick up where they left off in the Premier League on Tuesday evening, with the 20-time English champions welcoming Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford.

Man United will again definitely be without the services of Axel Tuanzebe through injury, while Diogo Dalot remains a major doubt with the issue that he picked up in Portugal’s World Cup quarter-final with Morocco.

The Red Devils have problems in the middle of their defence, with Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane both major doubts following their involvement in the World Cup final, while Harry Maguire is unwell.

Maguire could recover to line up alongside Victor Lindelof in the middle of the defence, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka could play just his second league game of the campaign at right-back.

Antony featured off the bench against Burnley and could now come into the XI here, potentially at the expense of Garnacho, with Bruno Fernandes, Rashford and Anthony Martial also set to feature in the final third.

Jadon Sancho, though, remains a major doubt, as he continues to undergo a personal fitness programme.

As for Forest, Dean Henderson is ineligible against his parent club, while Serge Aurier, Gibbs-White and Wayne Hennessey face late fitness tests.

Omar Richards, Giulian Biancone, Cheikhou Kouyate and Moussa Niakhate will definitely be unavailable for selection at Old Trafford due to injury problems.

Jesse Lingard is likely to be in the XI against his former club, while Brennan Johnson and Taiwo Awoniyi could both start if Gibbs-White is unable to prove his fitness ahead of kickoff at Old Trafford.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Hennessey; Williams, Worrall, Boly, Toffolo; Yates, Mangala, Colback; Johnson, Awoniyi, Lingard


We say: Manchester United 2-0 Nottingham Forest
