Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United LIVE!

The second Carabao Cup semi-final starts tonight with the City Ground hosting two clubs, in Forest and United, with plenty of prestige in this competition. The hosts have lifted the trophy four times and are on their first trip to the final four since the heady days of Brian Clough.

As for Man United, their 2017 triumph was their fifth Carabao Cup victory and their most recent domestic trophy lift - creating a relatively long, dark spell for the club that Erik ten Hag is desperate to end. Therefore, it was no surprise to see a strong team selected by the Dutchman with Casemiro back from a ban.

Since a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford in late December, Forest have lost just one of six games as Steve Cooper’s side assert themselves at the top level. Follow Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United live via Standard Sport’s match blog!

All guns blazing for Nottingham Forest

19:50 , Marc Mayo

Steve Cooper hopes to rally his players to make the most of tonight’s first leg in front of Forest’s own fans.

“There's enough recovery and preparation time to be ready for these games, there's no doubt about that,” he said. “The two games have actually come at a good time.

“It's a semi-final, we really want to commit to it, we really want to attack it. Obviously it's Man United, it's over two legs, incredibly tough games - but ones we want to have no regrets about.

“We're in the semi-final of an important cup. I think we should go into it thinking they don't come along very often, so treat it like it might be the last one.”

19:34 , Marc Mayo

The Man United boss lifted six cups at Ajax, all of which came since his new club’s last honour in 2017!

“It's the best feeling,” he said. “I had the luck in my career to win some trophies and it's magnificent, especially for the fans.

“It's so great and I think the fans here have some experience, especially the older ones. But now it is a period Manchester United didn't win trophies and it is too long ago.

“We are aware of that fact and we have to do everything to bring a trophy in.”

Early Nottingham Forest team news

17:50 , Marc Mayo

Ryan Yates is a doubt due to illness but otherwise there are no new injuries for Forest. Loanee Chris Wood could continue up front for Forest after joining in response to Taiwo Awoniyi’s injury.

Danilo is another recent addition hoping to be included following a debut off the bench on the weekend. Dean Henderson is both injured and ineligible, so Wayne Hennessey will continue in goal.
