Erik ten Hag has selected his Manchester United starting line-up for tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Nottingham Forest.

The Red Devils have one foot in this month’s final at Wembley, and a showdown against Newcastle United, after beating Steve Cooper’s side 3-0 win at The City Ground last week.

Here is the line-up the Dutchman has selected to face Forest at the Theatre of Dreams…

Starting XI: Heaton, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw, Casemiro, Fred, Fernandes, Antony, Garnacho, Weghorst.

Substitutes: De Gea, Malacia, Maguire, Lindelof, Mainoo, Pellistri, Sancho, Rashford, Martial.

Confirmed Manchester United starting line-up against Nottingham Forest

The former Ajax manager has made six changes to the side that beat Reading 3-1 in the FA Cup fourth-round on Friday night.

Tom Heaton, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Fred and Alejandro Garnacho come into the side.

With David de Gea, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford making way.

Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes scored the goals in last week’s commanding win on the River Trent.

Anthony Martial is back on the bench, and so is Jadon Sancho who forms part of a matchday squad for the first time since October.

Deadline day signing Marcel Sabitzer, who has joined the club on loan for the remainder of the campaign from Bayern Munich, doesn’t form part of tonight’s squad because he is still completing his visa process.

However, the 28-year-old is expected to be in attendance for tonight’s cup tie, and after watching his new teammates in action, he’ll be hoping to make his Red Devils debut in Saturday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

United beat Forest 3-0 at Old Trafford in December, in what was our first Premier League match after the World Cup. Rashford, Martial and Fred scored the goals that day.
