Nottingham Forest is in serious danger of heading back into the Championship next season. With only two points collected in their last six matches, things will need to turn around quickly for Steve Cooper’s men. Against Aston Villa, there were bright moments but ultimately Forest was unable to hang onto their halftime parity, with goals from Bertrand Traoré and Ollie Watkins after the interval enough to consign Nottingham Forest to defeat. Brennan Johnson carries the biggest threat for the East Midlands team, his bright movement, pace, and finishing will surely see him remain in the Premier League even if his side goes down.
Man United won easily against Everton thanks to goals from Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial. It wasn’t all good news for Erik Ten Hag however, United lost Marcus Rashford to injury late on and it seems likely the star forward will be missing for a couple of weeks. To add insult to that untimely injury, Man United also saw Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez taken off in their midweek European fixture. Martinez had to be carried off the pitch by the opposition so it seems the injury may be a serious one.
Man United will be depleted with key personnel missing so this may be the perfect time for Nottingham Forest to play the Red Devils. A win for Forest still seems a little out of reach but a share of the spoils seems a distinct possibility here.
