Nottingham Forest vs Man Utd: Red Devils looking to bounce back from midweek meltdown vs Tricky Trees – stream, TV
MANCHESTER UNITED return to the Premier League against Nottingham Forest on Sunday – and they will be determined to put their midweek drama behind them.
The Red Devils were on pole for a Europa League semi-final spot thanks to Marcel Sabitzer’s brace against Sevilla.
Until United threw away a two-goal lead late in Two Moments of Madness, arguably turning the tie in Sevilla’s favour.
However, Erik ten Hag will believe his side can make that miserable performance against a side they have defeated three times this season a distant memory.
But the United gaffer has an injury dilemma as key players are likely to be absent for the game.

What’s new from the team?
Steve Cooper’s side have been plagued by a string of injuries with Cheikhou Kouyate (hamstring) and Moussa Niakhate (hamstring) being the two latest members to join the long list.
Omar Richards (calf), Renan Lodi (knock), Giulian Biancoma (knee), Gustavo Scarpa (knee), Ryan Yates (shoulder) and Serge Aurier (knock) are expected to be absent.
They are joined by Chris Wood, Willy Boly and Dean Henderson, who have hamstring injuries.
However, Erik ten Hag has some major squad problems of his own with Marcus Rashford (groin), Donny van de Beek (knee), Luke Shaw (hamstring), Tom Heaton (ankle) and Alejandro Garnacho (ankle) all expected to sit out.
But to make matters worse, the United manager lost his pair of centre-backs Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the Seville draw – with the latter reportedly missing for the entire season.
