Man Utd v Forest Betting Tips & Predictions

Manchester United are priced at 4/13 to beat Nottingham Forest when the two teams meet in the first round of Premier League fixtures after the World Cup.

Manchester United saw off Burnley in the League Cup to make it three consecutive wins across all competitions. 

Erik ten Hag’s side are expecting to make that four on the bounce here, even with Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Diogo Dalot and Harry Maguire expected to be unavailable.

Morgan Gibbs-White and Serge Aurier are likely to sit out for Nottingham Forest after the pair missed the League Cup win over Blackburn. 

Steve Cooper’s team have enjoyed a strong run of form with just one defeat in seven matches in all competitions. 

Half Time/Full Time: Man Utd/Man Utd

20/21 (Ladbrokes)

United have won eight Premier League matches this season. 

In six of those, the Red Devils have had the lead at the interval. Rightly massive favourites for this match, there is no value backing United straight up to win.

Backing a first half lead pushes the odds to almost evens at Ladbrokes. If expecting a home win, this is a good way to unlock a more appealing price.

Anytime Goalscorer: Marcus Rashford

15/8 (Bet365)

Scorer of three goals for England at the World Cup, Marcus Rashford continued his fine form with the second goal in United’s win over Burnley. 

After a difficult couple of years, Rashford has looked fresher and more confident under Ten Hag.

Forest have put together some good results of late, but their defensive record is still poor. Rashford should get plenty of goal-scoring opportunities here.

Total Cards: Over 4.5

8/5 (Sporting Index)

United are one of three teams to have been shown more cards than Forest. 

Michael Salisbury is taking charge of this fixture, who has handed out an average of 4.28 cards per match.

Both sides foul frequently with a combined 22.8 fouls per match. At 8/5, this is a decent wager.
