Key storylines & in-form Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest players to watch
The injury lists for both teams mean we won’t see some serious talents including Morgan Gibbs-White and Christian Eriksen.
It will be interesting to see how Erik ten Hag lines up United without Eriksen and perhaps Scott McTominay, but we know we’ll see Marcus Rashford. The English forward is back ton his best.
Forest will hope to have Taiwo Awoniyi back in the fold, but young Brazilian center midfielder Danilo has been promising through his first two matches roaming the heart of the pitch after moving from Palmeiras.
