Team News
Manchester United
Man United did not come through their win over Reading unscathed, as key midfielder Christian Eriksen left the stadium on crutches after suffering an ankle injury, and the Danish lynchpin has now been ruled out for at least three months.

Eriksen joins Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot on the sidelines, and Luke Shaw will also need assessing due to illness, but Ten Hag has confirmed that Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho could both return to the squad here.

Amid a potential last-minute transfer swoop for an Eriksen stand-in, Fred can expect to fill the hole in the engine room for the time being, and Ten Hag may also consider handing starts to the likes of Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho given his side's comfortable three-goal cushion.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Martinez, Varane, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Elanga, Fernandes, Garnacho; Weghorst

Nottingham Forest
In eerily similar fashion to Eriksen, Nottingham Forest attacker Morgan Gibbs-White also left the field with an ankle problem in the first-leg loss to Man United, and the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man has been ruled out of this one.

A well-occupied Forest treatment room also holds Moussa Niakhate, Giulian Biancone, Taiwo Awoniyi, Cheikhou Kouyate, Omar Richards and Dean Henderson, the latter of whom would not be able to face his parent club anyway.

A spot has opened up for ex-Man United attacker Jesse Lingard or Emmanuel Dennis to start for the visitors with Gibbs-White absent, while Ryan Yates's status is still unclear after he missed the first leg due to illness - the same goes for Jack Colback.
Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Hennessey; Aurier, Worrall, Boly, Lodi; Mangala, Danilo, Freuler; Scarpa; Johnson, Dennis
Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Nottingham Forest
