Recent Form 

Forest are now unbeaten in four Premier League matches after drawing with Bournemouth at the weekend. Although they would have liked to get a win over the Cherries, Forest have put themselves in a good position to stay up and have been advancing up the table during this spell of good form. 

Man Utd were handed their first loss since November, when Aston Villa beat them 3-1, though this was a more respectable defeat as it was inflicted late on by league-leaders Arsenal. However, despite the scoreline representing a tight match (3-2), it was anything but that with the Gunners dominating every facet of the game.  

The main issue that stood out for the Red Devils was their transitional play, which has been one of their best characteristics over the last few years. Poor decisions were made too many times, whether it was Antony losing the ball in a wide position or Rashford trying to take on one more man than necessary, and Erik ten Hag will need to fix this if they want to compete with the top teams in the league. 

Man United To Win And Over 2.5 Goals 

The last time these two sides met was the day after Boxing Day, when Forest made the trip to Old Trafford and were duly handed a 3-0 loss.  

United have Reading in the fourth round of the FA Cup on the weekend, so they will most likely start a strong team in this one, and we think they are good value to get the win and bag some goals at the same time.
