Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest
English Premier League
Date: 26 August 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
The faults of Manchester United were evident in their loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the previous Premier League match.
The lackluster performance of Manchester United’s defense and the lack of work in the middle of the field highlighted their weaknesses. They will be looking to bounce back against Nottingham Forest.
Although they were able to get a win against Wolves on the first matchday, Manchester United will need to be improved in order to get anything from this encounter with Steve Cooper’s team.
On the first day, the Red Devils lost to Arsenal. Despite this setback, they were able to bounce back with a win against Sheffield United.
With the team of Erik Ten Hag still finding its feet this season, Forest will be eager to upset Manchester United.
Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest Head to head :
- In the history of the game, Manchester United has been the dominant force. They’ll be going into this encounter after winning eight in a row against Nottingham Forest.
- In the previous season, Manchester United defeated Nottingham Forest four times. They did so without allowing a single goal.
- Over the course of the last four meetings between these two teams, Manchester United has won by two goals or more.
Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest Prediction :
Despite being regarded as favorites, Manchester United’s first two performances did not look promising. We like the 2.00 odds offered by the bookmakers for Nottingham Forest to avoid losing by two or more goals at Old Trafford.
We also trust the defensive line of Nottingham Forest to keep the Red Devils’ attacking stars at bay. Since Manchester United has only scored one goal in its first two matches, we think that the oddsmakers are right on the Under 2.5 goals market.
