A week on from securing three crucial Premier League points in a 2-0 home victory over West Ham United, Nottingham Forest suffered a 4-2 defeat away to Aston Villa last Saturday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side remain in the relegation picture as the hover just four points above the drop zone, and without even kicking a ball they have slipped to 17th in the league standings this week after Everton’s 10-point deduction for financial breaches was reduced to six following an appeal.

The Tricky Trees now shift their attention to Wednesday’s FA Cup tie with Man United as they endeavour to progress to the quarter-finals for the second time in the seasons.

Forest have scraped through to the fifth round this season after requiring replays to beat League One side Blackpool and Championship outfit Bristol City in the previous two rounds, winning 5-3 on penalties against the latter earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Man United entered last weekend’s league match against Fulham in buoyant mood after putting togrther a four-game winning run to kick-start February in perfect style, but they suffered a blow in their quest to secure a top-four finish after losing 2-1 to the Cottagers at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils ultimately lacked a cutting edge in the final third and they remain sixth in the table, slipping eight points behind Aston Villa in fourth place with 12 matches remaining, including a daunting trip to reigning champions Man City on Sunday.

Man United’s only realistic hope of silverware this season is the FA Cup, a competition that they have won 12 times but not since 2016, despite progressing beyond the fifth round in six of the last seven campaigns.

Erik ten Hag’s side have beaten lower-league duo Wigan Athletic and Newport County to reach the fifth round this season, and victory on Wednesday would see them progress to the FA Cup quarter-finals for a record 48th time.

Nottingham vs. Man U Head to head

In the 84 previous meetings between these two teams, Forest have claimed 25 victories while Man United have won 42, and they have drawn in 17. United have scored 157 goals and conceded 103 in the process.

Man U Team News

Casemiro has emerged as a major doubt after being forced off with a nasty head injury in the defeat to Fulham, and Scott McTominay, Chrstian Eriksen or Sofyan Amrabat could deputise in centre-midfield alongside Kobbie Mainoo.

After making his first senior start against Fulham, teenage academy graduate Omari Forson will be hoping to retain his place on the right side of attack, but he faces competition from Antony.
