Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Analysis
This should be a super contest, which will be decided on the night and both sides will be doing all they can to progress in the FA Cup.

Nottingham Forest

Whilst they remain in the mix for relegation with many punters and Premier League betting sites, there have been a few signs in recent weeks that Nottingham Forest are starting to tick under Nuno Espirito Santo. The Tricky Trees are always tough to break down at home and they managed to beat United in front of their own fans earlier in the season, something they will want to take heart from here.

Team news: Only Willy Boly is a confirmed injury absentee for Forest, as they look to assemble their squad again after the African Cup of Nations.

Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineup:
Mats Sels, Neco Williams, Murillo, Andrew Omobamidele, Nuno Tavares, Nicholas Dominguez, Danilo, Ryan Yates, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Morgan Gibbs-White & Taiwo Awoniyi.

Manchester United

As has so often been the case for Manchester United this season, the wheels have fallen off at completely the wrong time. Flying high after consecutive wins, talk around Old Trafford was about a top 4 finish and Champions League football next season, before Fulham came to town and beat them 2-1. Thankfully for them, the FA Cup offers a welcome change of scenery, and they will be desperate to reach the last 8.

Team news: Lisandro Martinez, Aaron wan-Bissaka, Rasmus Hojlund, Anthony Martial, Mason Mount and Tyrell Malacia remain on the sidelines.

Manchester United Predicted Lineup:
Andre Onana, Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Kobbie Mainoo, Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnacho, Christian Eriksen & Marcus Rashford.

This will be a raucous at the City Ground, with Forest desperate to be in the hunt for silverware and with United seeing the FA Cup as their only viable option of winning a trophy this season. Forest will rotate but have a squad capable of troubling United, but Erik ten Hag’s men have been in decent form in 2024 and they should come through this stern test.
