Manchester United’s Premier League campaign is set to resume with the visit of Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford on Tuesday 27 December.
On the back of a successful return to action on Wednesday night – a 2-0 win at home to Burnley in the Carabao Cup – Erik ten Hag’s side will be hoping to restart our league season in a similar fashion when the Nottinghamshire side comes to town.
The game will be United’s first premier league match in just over six weeks, following the World Cup break, and our first meeting with Forest since 1999.
United made a winning return to action in midweek, defeating Championship leaders Burnley 2-0 at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford. In the time between our most recent competitive outings, a young Reds squad were edged out by Spanish sides Cadiz and Real Betis in warm-up friendlies.
Before the pause to the term, United had lost just once in 12 matches across all competitions.
Forest come into the Premier League fixture following a 4-1 victory in the aforementioned League Cup trip to Blackburn on Wednesday, with Lingard, Brennan Johnson (2) and Taiwo Awoniyi all on the scoresheet.
