Man United vs Nottingham Forest prediction

Man United will end the season without a trophy if they are knocked out of the FA Cup and Ten Hag is beginning to feel the pressure on his position at Old Trafford.

Defeat to Fulham ended a five-game winning streak in all competitions and Forest have needed replays, extra-time or penalties to get past non-Premier League opposition in the previous rounds.
