Manchester United take on Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford on 26th August 2023 in the third game of the 2023/2024 Premier League season. Kick off is 1500 hours UK time.
Erik Ten Hag will want to return to winning ways after a poor performance and 2-0 loss last week at Spurs where they were well beaten in the second half by a Spurs team who wanted the 3 points more. Mason Mount is out until after the international break after sustaining an injury at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium whilst new singing Rasmus Hojlund continues his road to recovery and remains unavailable leaving Ten Hag with only one of his 3 new signings available.
Manchester United fans group the_1958 have a 60 minute sit in arranged after the game as a protest against the owners. All match going supporters are encouraged to stay behind after the full time whistle for 60 minutes.
Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper will be hoping that new signing Anthony Elanga will be able to give his expert opinion on United having only recently left Ten Hag’s side to join Forest. Forest struggled away from home last season getting only 8 of their 38 point on the road.
Man Utd go into the game favourites at odds of 3/10 for a United win.
Last season United beat Forest 3-0 at Old Trafford with goals from Martial, Rashford and Fred and went to the City ground later in the season and won 2-0, Antony and Dalot were on the scoresheet that day. United also beat Forest in the league cup semi final over 2 legs. United won 3-0 in the first leg and 2-0 back at Old Trafford.
