Man Utd 2-0 Nottingham Forest LIVE! Fred goal - Carabao Cup result, match stream and latest updates today

Second-half goals from Anthony Martial and Fred earned Manchester United a comfortable 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday to secure a 5-0 aggregate win and a place in the Carabao Cup final.

January signing Wout Weghorst almost followed his goal in the first leg with another in an opening period of few clear-cut chances, heading a pinpoint Casemiro cross against the post at Old Trafford.

United manager Erik ten Hag sent top scorer Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Martial on in the second half to try to put the tie to bed and the French forward scuffed home the opener in the 73rd minute.

Brazilian Fred put the icing on the cake three minutes later, tapping in at the far post to book his team a final date with Newcastle United on Feb. 26.

In his first season at the club, ten Hag could end United’s longest trophy drought in 40 years should his team beat Eddie Howe’s men at Wembley.

Lingard injured in the warm-up!

Sancho back in contention

19:47 , Jonathan Gorrie

A very pleasing sight to see the winger on the bench for United today.

If Sancho can get back to the kind of player he was at Dortmund, Erik ten Hag could have quite some attacking line in the second half of the season.

£106.8m Fernandez is CHEAPER than Lingard, Gallagher and Fred on FPL

18:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

Enzo Fernandez will enter Fantasy Premier League with a miserly price tag of £5million.

The new Chelsea signing cost a whopping £106.8m when signing on transfer deadline day from Benfica, a new British record.

But the FPL boffins have decided to cut his price drastically in comparison to many other midfielders in the game.

Fernandez’s base price is the same as new teammates N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, although both of their stock has fallen due to injury issues this season, as well as Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Denis Zakaria.

Startling agent comments show why ‘killer’ Sabitzer is perfect for Man United

18:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

Erik ten Hag’s desperate desire to return Manchester United to glory could be receiving its ideal new component in the form of Marcel Sabitzer.

The Austrian midfielder completed a loan move to the Red Devils late on transfer deadline day to cover for Christian Eriksen’s three-month injury absence.

Sabitzer, 28, has been something of a bit-part player at Bayern Munich this season and arrives at United determined to earn a regular spot in the line-up, as comments from agent Roger Wittmann reveal.

Prediction: Man United to win 1-0

17:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

Given the size of United’s lead, it’s likely they will look to contain Forest.

With that in mind, it’s hard to see them scoring quite as many this time around, with ten Hag’s side looking to take the sting out of the game early on.

Man United to win 1-0.

Nottingham Forest: Navas and Wood not available

17:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

For Forest, Chris Wood is cup-tied while the injured Dean Henderson would not have been able to play anyway. Wayne Hennessey will start in goal despite Keylor Navas’ deadline-day arrival.

It will be interesting to see how seriously or not Steve Cooper takes the tie. With the game surely gone, perhaps Forest will rest players to instead focus on their Premier League campaign.

Manchester United team news: Jadon Sancho could feature

Ten Hag is expected to rotate, such is the strength of United’s lead. Alejandro Garnacho, Harry Maguire, Fred and Victor Lindelof are all among those who could play, while Jadon Sancho has returned to training.

Christian Eriksen, however, is now facing up to four months out of action with ankle injury, joining Scott McTominay on the sidelines. New signing Marcel Sabitzer is not eligable to play.
