The midweek action come courtesy of the Carabao Cup semi-finals second legs. On Wednesday we have the return leg from Old Trafford, where Manchester United lead Nottingham Forest 3-0 . We’ve previewed the contest and given you some suggested best bets.

Man Utd vs Nottingham Forest Tips

The Red Devils (4/9) maintained their impressive run of form over the last week, with a 3-0 win over Forest (6/1) in the first leg, before qualifying for the 5th round of the FA Cup, with a comprehensive 3-1 win over Reading.

United have now lost just once in their last 13 games in all competitions and despite being pretty much through already, will be keen to keep up the winning momentum.

Forest had no game at the weekend, due to their 4-1 thrashing by Blackpool in the third round of the FA Cup. Manager Steve Cooper will have been glad for the rest and the chance to concentrate on more transfer business.

Realistically this tie looks a bridge too far after the first leg but the Tricky Trees will no doubt give their all in an effort to claw some ground back.

Team news:

Erik ten Hag is without several of his squad and given the injuries, will be forced into playing something approaching his strongest side.

Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial, Axel Tuanzebe and Diogo Dalot are joined by Christian Eriksen on the unavailable list, while Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Jaydon Sancho are all doubtful and will need to be assessed.

Steve Cooper is in a similar position with Morgan Gibbs-White picking up a knock in the first leg and he joins Giulian Biancone, Moussa Niakhate, Omar Richards, Taiwo Awoniyi, Cheikhou Kouyate and Dean Henderson in the injury room.

Latest Man Utd vs Nottingham Forest Betfred Odds

Man Utd to win and Both teams to score – 23/10

United may have been in a superb vein of form but they are still struggling to keep clean sheets.

In their last seven games the Red Devils have conceded in five of them and with Forest coming out all guns blazing. It wouldn’t be surprising to see them get on the scoresheet.

Marcus Rashford first goal scorer – 11/4

What a run of form Marcus Rashford is in right now. He has scored 10 goals in his last 11 games and should get another start here, meaning plenty more chances at goal.

Betfred are running their famed Double Delight/ Hat-trick Heaven Promotion on this match, meaning should the England striker score first and then go on to score a second, you will be paid at double the odds (11/2). Should he score a 3rd, you would be paid at triple the odds (33/4).
