Man Utd predicted lineup vs Nottingham Forest - EFL Cup

Manchester United will contest the 2023 EFL Cup final providing they don't squander a three-goal advantage in the second leg of their semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

The Red Devils ran out 3-0 winners at the City Ground last week and can afford to rest some of their key men ahead of a busy schedule on the horizon, including two Premier League matches against rivals Leeds United and a Europa League knockout round play-off against Barcelona.

With that in mind, here's the starting lineup Erik ten Hag could select on Wednesday night.

Man Utd predicted lineup vs Nottingham Forest

GK: David de Gea - Ten Hag has appeared reluctant to use backup goalkeepers in cup competitions this season.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka - Injury to Diogo Dalot means Wan-Bissaka is set to continue at right-back.

CB: Victor Lindelof - He and teammate Harry Maguire were the subject of late transfer window approaches from Inter, but United opted to keep them.

CB: Harry Maguire - Desperate to get his hands on some silverware as the club captain.

LB: Tyrell Malacia - Should be afforded another chance to impress amid Luke Shaw's tremendous season.

CM: Casemiro - Grabbed a sensational brace against Reading in the FA Cup at the weekend. May as well let him ride this hot run.

CM: Fred - Should win the battle with Scott McTominay to start alongside Casemiro with Christian Eriksen out injured for the foreseeable future.

RM: Antony - The gears are starting to click with the little spinning winger.

AM: Bruno Fernandes - If Fernandes is fit for a game, he will start it.

LM: Alejandro Garnacho - Gets you off your seat and that's why the Old Trafford crowd love him.

CF: Wout Weghorst - Scored his first United goal in the first leg and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally in red here.
