Manchester United take on Nottingham Forest in the Premier League this weekend. Here’s absolutely everything you need to know about the fixture.

Erik ten Hag will not be happy with the start his squad have made to the Premier League season. A scrappy win against Wolves to begin with only got made worse with a 2-0 loss at Tottenham last weekend.

United appear to look disconnected and some players are certainly not pulling their weight. Nevertheless – it’s early days, meaning things can only get better.

We now welcome Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford. Here’s everything you need to know about the fixture.

Team News

It’s still early, but the previous two fixtures can give us a good indication of the team ten Hag will field.

Evidently – something needs to change. Ten Hag fielded the exact same side in the last two fixtures, with the Red Devils’ performance being nothing short of abysmal in both.

There may be a few different names rewarded with a start. Facundo Pellistri is a player that’s been on the fringe for a while now but with the attacking intent looking non-threatening, he may finally be given a start.

Mason Mount may also drop out. He’s not had the best start to life as a United player, more or less ghosting in both games. Scott McTominay will likely come in for him to provide some boisterousness to the midfield.

Manchester United Injuries

The following players will most likely not feature. They’re all still spending time in the medical tent.


Can things get worse? Nottingham Forest have looked decent in their opening fixtures. Narrowly losing to Arsenal and defeating Sheffield – this won’t be a straightforward game for the Reds.

Nevertheless, we’re optimistic they’ll get a result.
