Manchester United’s coach Erik Ten Hag could have received really good news in the last few hours ahead of the Red Devils’ next FA Cup game against Nottingham Forest in City Ground for the Fifth Round of the competition, as the locals will have several important absences to face the Mancunian team.

Man United can’t wait, Ten Hag took this controversial decision on £86m star

The Tricky Trees, managed by the Portuguese coach Nuno Espirito Santo, have created serious problems to the Red Devils in the games played in the Premier League this season, as the potential five major absences had by the locals against United could highly help Ten Hag’s team in the game.

In addition, the Nottingham Forest boss won’t be able to count on his top scorer for the game against United, nor the presence of a £30 million ace which would have given serious problems in the game to Ten Hag’s side.

In this sense, Erik Ten Hag will see the return of Casemiro in the midfield for the game despite not being able to count on Rasmus Hojlund, whose absence could be covered by Rashford, Amari Forson or the young striker Amad Diallo; Nottingham’s coach Nuno Espirito Santo will be forced to present an experimental lineup against Manchester United.

Which Forest players won’t play against United?

The Portuguese manager won’t count for the game with the presence of the defenders Willy Boly, Ola Aina and Arsenal’s loanee Nuno Tavares, as the top scorer Chris Wood will be sidelined for the clash against the Red Devils. In addition, the £30 million midfielder Ibrahima Sangare, considered one of the most important players for Forest, won’t be either in the game for the locals, who will have the former United striker Anthony Elanga ready to seek a massive revenge against Ten Hag, the manager avoiding him to succeed at Manchester.
