| Last Updated:


Manchester United will be lining up for the final time in 2023 as they face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground in the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag‘s men come off the back of a fantastic comeback victory against Aston Villa as Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Højlund helped Manchester United overcome a 2-0 deficit at Old Trafford.

With Højlund out through illness, he is replaced by Antony as Ten Hag selects his side to face Nottingham Forest in the Premier League, with the club looking to climb the table after falling to seventh, two points behind West Ham.
