Nottingham Forest team news and predicted XI vs Manchester United

Steve Cooper’s Forest remain on a winless run in the Premier League amid a swath of selection issues, but Manchester United’s own questions across the team and poor away record could leave the door open for a result

Nottingham Forest Team News

  • Out: Chris Wood, Willy Boly, Dean Henderson, Giulian Biancone, Omar Richards, Ryan Yates, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Moussa Niakhaté
  • Doubt: Sèrge Aurier, Emmanuel Dennis, Renan Lodi, Gustavo Scarpa

Relegation candidates Nottingham Forest continue to flirt with the possibility of returning from whence they came as they sit in the bottom three despite one of the most impressive recruitment drives in Premier League history since their return to the top flight of English football.

Thankfully for Steve Cooper’s Forest, in some measure, that stockpiling of players has come to the surface in the wake of another rampant spell of fitness issues at the City Ground will have Cooper piecing an XI together at the weekend against a United side that has issues of their own.

Eight senior players are guaranteed to miss out on Sunday against Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils, while a quartet of options – Sèrge Aurier, Emmanuel Dennis, Renan Lodi, and Gustavo Scarpa – will all face late assessments to gauge any possible involvement across another critical weekend for the club’s Premier League future.
