Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest Predictions & Match Preview
Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest
English Premier League
Date: 27 December 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Manchester United host Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening in the 17th round of the Premier League.
The Red Devils finished the pre-World Cup phase with a 1-2 road win at Fulham and they will have a nice opportunity to continue the domestic league campaign with a victory in front of the home fans against the newly-promoted outfit.
It is fair to say that Erik ten Hag has done a solid job since taking charge of United before the start of the season.
The Dutch manager managed to earn the respect from the players and things look much better inside the team’s dressing room at the moment.
Obviously, the Cristiano Ronaldo saga is behind the team and the fans can’t wait to see the continuation of the Premier League challenges with this squad packed with talent all over the place.
The Red Devils will be dangerous up front with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Antony, and Anthony Martial, while the likes of Casemiro, Raphael Varane, and Lisandro Martinez bring the much-needed solidity at the back.
The only slight issue for the hosts going into this matchup is the fact they will likely miss three of their four first-team regulars in the defensive line.
In these circumstances, we would by no means be surprised to see the visitors on the scoresheet on Tuesday.
Nottingham showed an excellent attacking form last Wednesday when they bagged four goals in the road win over Championship outfit Blackburn in the last 16 round of Carabao Cup.
However, since Manchester United have issues with the defensive line going into this game, we will back the Home Win & Both Teams To Score pick at the 3.00 odds. We will also go with Marcus Rashford to score anytime at the 2.87 odds, following his extraordinary spell of form at the World Cup.
