Only a massive collapse from Manchester United would see them fail to reach the Carabao Cup final when they take on Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

The Red Devils ran out 3-0 winners in the first leg of the tie last week and will surely progress when they meet again at Old Trafford for the return fixture.

Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest preview

United followed up their comfortable win last week with a 3-1 win against Championship side Reading in the FA Cup at the weekend.

Erik ten Hag could opt to rest several players for this game because of their advantage against the visitors.

Christian Eriksen is unlikely to feature as he picked up an injury against Reading, while Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw may be missing too after being ruled out for the weekend tie.

Diogo Dalot and Anthony Martial have been sidelined for a while and are not expected back for this game, Donny van de Beek is to miss the rest of the season.

United were dominant when the two teams met last week and with home advantage on their side, this could be another big victory. Backing over 2.5 goals at odds of 3/4 (1.75) looks a good bet then.
