Following an impressive campaign that saw Erik ten Hag earn plaudits from all quarters, Man Utd have yet to click into gear this season. They were fortunate to gain a 1-0 win over Wolves on the opening weekend and were then outplayed in the 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham. With summer signing Rasmus Højlund still injured, United have looked blunt in attack and their midfield has been overrun in both games.  

These issues will need to be addressed quickly and there will be changes in midfield for the visit of Forest as Mason Mount will miss the next two games through injury. Christian Eriksen has come back into the team, while in attack youngster Alejandro Garnacho has struggled to make an impact and is replaced in the starting XI by Anthony Martial. 

The home side will need to deliver a much-improved performance against Forest who fought hard in the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal and created plenty of opportunities in the 2-1 win over Sheffield Utd. Striker Taiwo Awoniyi is in the form of his life and has now scored in six consecutive league games, while Brennan Johnson provides a constant threat on the counter-attack. Summer signing Anthony Elanga will also be desperate to impress having been deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford this summer, though he will start from the bench. 

The two sides met on four occasions last season and they were all one-sided affairs with United winning the league games 3-0 at home and 2-0 away, as well as securing a 5-0 aggregate victory in the Carabao Cup semi-final. Ten Hag will hope his side can rediscover this form on Saturday, while Forest boss Steve Cooper will believe his side have the quality to expose United’s defensive frailties. 

Line-ups

Manchester United XI: Onana, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Dalot, Casemiro, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.

Nottingham Forest XI: Turner, Boly, Worrall, McKenna, Aurier, Danilo, Yates, Aina, Johnson, Gibbs-White, Awoniyi.
