Nottingham vs Man United Prediction: Premier League Match

Manchester United continue their challenge for a place in the top four this weekend when they make their first visit to the City Ground for a league clash since 1999. The hosts will also be desperate for the points after dropping back into the bottom three.


Premier League Preview 

It promises to be a huge two weeks or so for Manchester United, as they compete across a number of different competitions. On Sunday, the attention will be on the Premier League, as the Red Devils look to pick up a third straight league victory. United edged over the line last weekend against Everton, with Anthony Martial scoring on his return to the team at Old Trafford.

However, United’s away form could be a concern coming into this match in the East Midlands, as they have lost three of their last four in the league. That is a contrast to their run before this period, as they had lost just three of their opening ten away from Old Trafford. United have also allowed 29 goals on the road this term; they haven’t allowed more since 1978-79. 

Nottingham Forest have dropped back into the relegation places in the Premier League over recent weeks, but they could move back out of the bottom three with a famous victory this weekend. However, their form over their previous five is extremely poor, as they have registered four defeats and one draw. 

Forest are now winless in six, and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their previous nine matches in the league. Furthermore, they haven’t won a single Premier League game in 23 efforts when they have conceded the opening goal. 

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Head to Head 

This will be the first meeting between the sides at the City Ground since 1999, when United ran out 8-1 winners. United have also landed victory in their previous nine matches against Forest, including victories on three occasions across the Premier League and EFL Cup this term.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Prediction 

United boasts an excellent record in this fixture, and that’s a hard fact to look past. Marcus Rashford’s absence could be a big blow, but we still fully expect the Red Devils to claim maximum points with a 2-0 scoreline at the City Ground.
