Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Tips


Nottingham Forest are eyeing a huge shock in the FA Cup as they host Manchester United this week.

Manchester United are in need of a big result, with their recent defeat at the hands of Fulham in the league piling the pressure on the side. 

  • Forest have won two of their last three at home in all competitions (L1)
  • Forest have seen BTTS in three of their four FA Cup matches 
  • Forest beat United 2-1 when the sides met back in December 
  • United lost their last outing at the hands of Fulham 
  • United have seen BTTS in their last three games 

Head To Head


While United have won 13 of their last 20 meetings with Forest, they fell to a stunning 2-1 defeat when the sides met back in December. This was Forest's fourth win in their last 20, with the other three ending in draws. 

Nottingham Forest Form 


Nottingham Forest continue to give the opposition they face real problems, with most matches they play in seeing them competitive in the clash. 

Indeed, a 4-2 loss against a very good Aston Villa last week followed a brilliant 2-0 win over West Ham. Prior to this, Forest had fallen to a 3-2 loss at the hands of Newcastle, with this showing Forest are hardly a side teams consistently walk over. 

While the home team have not been perfect, they arrive for this one as slight underdogs at $3.65 with Unibet to beat United. They are not far behind their opponents in the betting, and I believe an upset is on the cards against a travelling side that have not been convincing enough this season.

Manchester United Form 


Manchester United fell to a humiliating 2-1 loss at the hands of Fulham in their last outing as they saw their five-game winning run brought to an end. 

Despite arriving for their latest league game as one of the form sides in the Premier League on paper, their loss has once again seen huge questions asked of the side. While it seems incredible to question a team that had won five on the bounce, they were hardly convincing at any point on this run. 

While the odds say United are the favourites, they will not be given an easy ride in this one, and I believe one defeat will turn into two in midweek. 

Verdict

I am backing Forest to secure a stunning win over Manchester United as the travelling side are dealt another major blow.
