The Nottingham Forest team that drew 1-1 with Bournemouth at the weekend had four changes. Sam Surridge gets the start after scoring the equaliser there off the bench. Along with January acquisitions Gustavo Scarpa and Danilo, Scott McKenna joins the team. Dean Henderson, the goalkeeper, is injured, but he would not have been able to play because he cannot play against his parent club.

For Manchester United, Casemiro returns from suspension and gets the start. Tyrell Malacia and Victor Lindelof are also added from the squad that suffered the loss to Arsenal. Wout Weghorst maintains his position in front.

Forest, who are trying to reach their first League Cup final since 1992, performed admirably, although they were unable to capitalise on numerous promising attacks. And thanks to a goal from Bruno Fernandes in the 89th minute, Man United’s return match at Old Trafford next week will undoubtedly be a formality as they aim to go to Wembley.

Another good starting lineup, which included Casemiro returning from the suspension he served in Sunday’s Premier League loss to Arsenal, demonstrated Erik Ten Hag’s determination to make the most of the opportunity to win a trophy in his first season in command at Old Trafford.

The visitors seized the lead after only six minutes thanks to another goal from Rashford. This time, the England forward did all the work on his own goal. From inside his own half, he advanced down the left before cutting inside between two Forest players and shooting with his left foot at the near post.

Rashford scored the goal, his tenth in as many appearances following the World Cup and the most of any player in the top five leagues in Europe. Despite making that early surrender, Forest didn’t back down and numerous times came very close to tying the score. The United defence was consistently put at risk by Brennan Johnson’s speed.

The hosts believed they had equalised in the 23rd minute when Sam Surridge scored after a quick burst, but a VAR review determined he had been offside.

United then seized a potentially important second just before halftime. By forcing Forest goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey to block Antony’s well-placed shot, who had already had one decent opportunity turned away, Weghorst was able to touch the ball into the net to start his United account.

In the second half, the plot remained the same. When Christian Eriksen fired a first-time attempt against the crossbar, United came dangerously close to upping its lead to 3-0. The energetic Morgan Gibbs-White won the ball just outside the box and blasted wildly off target, leaving Forest to once again lament their lack of finishing touch. Although Fernandes’ late goal may have been harsh on Forest, it is certain that Man United will travel to Wembley in search of their first major trophy in six years.
