Where to watch Nottingham Forest vs Man United live stream, TV channel, lineups, prediction for Premier League game

Manchester United wrap up 2023 with a tricky Premier League trip to Nottingham Forest on December 30.

Erik ten Hag’s side produced a superb fightback to win 3-2 at home to Aston Villa on December 26 as Rasmus Hojlund netted his first Premier League goal to clinch the victory.

Nuno Espirito Santo also picked up his first win since replacing Steve Cooper at Forest with a 3-1 victory on the road at Newcastle United. Chris Wood’s hat-trick secured an impressive victory at St James’ Park and gave Forest a huge confidence boost ahead of this game.

United fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in the reverse fixture back in August, while they were victorious at the City Ground in the Carabao Cup and the league last season without conceding a goal.

Nottingham Forest vs Man United lineups, team news

Nuno is unlikely to make too many changes from a winning team but he is boosted by the return of Willy Boly following suspension.

Wales international Neco Williams could come in at right-back in place of Gonzalo Montiel but Ibrahim Sangare is suspended. Anthony Elanga is in line to start against his old club.

Nottingham Forest (4-2-3-1, right to left): Turner (GK) — Williams, Boly, Murillo, Aina — Yates, Danilo — Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi — Wood.

Nottingham Forest subs (9): TBC

Ten Hag’s injury list remains in double figures and he will have to wait until January for changes on that front. Defender Luke Shaw is expected to return alongside a possible recall for Sofyan Amrabat.

Man United (4-2-3-1 right to left): Onana (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Evans, Shaw — Amrabat, Mainoo — Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford — Hojlund.

Nottingham Forest vs Man United prediction

Nuno has injected some positivity into Forest since his arrival at the club but United land in Nottingham on the back of overpowering Villa at Old Trafford.

Forest have lost four in a row at home in Premier League action, while United have won just once in their past six away games in all competitions, so it’s hard to call a winner.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Man United
