Erik ten Hag included the majority of his returning World Cup stars in the Carabao Cup win over Burnley but a defensive duo Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane are still gone.
David deGaa and Luke Shaw are expected to line up against the Clarets after being named on the bench Casemiro still on defense. Aaron Wan-Bissaka could keep his place at right-back, but Jadon Sancho probably won’t return yet.

Steve Cooper is struggling with an ongoing injury crisis at Forest Omar Richards, Cheikhou Kouyate and Serge Aurier excluded, and Dean Henderson not entitled to compete against his parent club. Jess Lingard however, will likely start on his return to Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest Betting Odds, Prediction
Both teams made victorious comebacks against championship opponents after the World Cup in the Carabao Cup, but United are strong favorites for this game.
Cooper’s Forest appear to be in the middle of a relegation battle in their second season, with United pushing for a place in the Champions League and having not conceded a goal in their last three Premier League home games.
