Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h, odds

Manchester United know they must improve quickly after a disappointing start to the season, and a home game against Nottingham Forest should prove a fine opportunity to do so.

United were outplayed by Wolves on the opening weekend, though still won, but Tottenham ran out 2-0 winners last time out to leave Erik ten Hag with plenty of questions to answer.

Forest will know they have enough about them to spring a surprise at Old Trafford, having pushed Arsenal quite far in their first game before beating Sheffield United last time out.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Man United vs Nottingham Forest is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

The match will take place at Old Trafford in Salford.

Man United vs Nottingham Forest prediction

Manchester United need to put in a performance in front of their fans and have more than enough quality to do so against this Nottingham Forest side.

Whether they do so, though, is another question. Erik ten Hag has enough about him to switch things up, which could see Jadon Sancho return in a ‘false nine’ role, and I expected United to get the job done.

Man United to win, 3-1.
