Erik ten Hag's side showed little sign of being affected by Cristiano Ronaldo's acrimonious exit from the club as they made light work of Burnley in the Carabao Cup last Wednesday and the Dutch coach will be expecting more of the same against a Forest side that has struggled in the league. However, Forest, too, will be full of confidence after easily beating Blackburn Rovers 4-1 last time out.

Harry Maguire missed the Carabao Cup win over Burnley due to illness, with Casemiro deputising as a makeshift centre-back in the game. His involvement in the game against Forest will depend on how much he recovers. Man Utd's first-choice centre-backs, Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, are doubts for the match, with Martinez celebrating a World Cup triumph with Argentina, while Varane suffered defeat in the final.
Jadon Sancho is not expected to be available for the game and Ronaldo has, of course, left Old Trafford, departing in somewhat bitter circumstances after airing a long list of grievances in a sensational interview with Piers Morgan.
Possible Man Utd starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Lindelof, Malacia; McTominay, Eriksen, Fernandes; Rashford, Garnacho, Martial.

|Forwards||Awoniyi, Surridge, Johnson, Dennis, Taylor|

Jesse Lingard faces his former club full of confidence, having scored in the Carabao Cup against Blackburn, while Brennan Johnson got two in the win.
