Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United LIVE score: Result from Carabao Cup semi-final first leg – Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes get goals

Erik ten Hag aims for silverware in Carabao Cup

Manchester United put one foot on Wembley Way after taking a firm command of the Carabao Cup semi-finals with a 3-0 first leg win at Nottingham Forest.

First-half goals from Marcus Rashford and Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes’ late third-place finish at the City Ground mean only a miraculous turnaround in next week’s second leg will prevent United from progressing to next month’s League Cup final in the domestic league. stadium to appear.

Rashford’s attack was a moment of individual brilliance as he rushed for 50 yards and converted. Weghorst celebrated his first goal for the club since moving from Burnley on loan, while Fernandes effectively killed the tie at death.

The win saw United poised to return to Wembley for their first national showpiece since losing the 2018 FA Cup Final. Erik ten Hag will have a chance to end the club’s drought, dating back to 2017, and he has his sights firmly in his sights. first season at Old Trafford.

Relive all the action as Manchester United beat Nottingham Forest in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup:


Marcus Rashford’s final salvo sends Manchester United to the brink of the Wembley date

Arguably the finest goal of what is shaping up to be the best season of Marcus Rashford’s career could lead to the kind of trophy United have been missing out on in recent seasons. As in 1990 when Robins struck against Brian Clough’s team, United could be on course to end a long wait for silverware with a first honor of a manager’s reign. Erik ten Hag described winning trophies as the best feeling. It’s one United are on course to experience, with a three-goal lead at Old Trafford and a likely Carabao Cup final beyond that.

Their path seems increasingly likely to lead to Wembley. Rashford’s journey took him to the Forest Box in a burst from United’s own half. For the Mancunian, the past year has taken a route from the worst period of his career to the best of form: 12 months ago he had already scored his last goal of the season. Now, with 10 goals in as many games, he is on course for his most productive campaign.

Full Time: Nottm Forest 0-3 Man Utd

90+3 min: The full-time whistle blows the curtain on a brilliant night for Manchester United. They have now gone eight games unlost at the City Ground and comfortably cruised past Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.

The greatest damage has now been done and Erik ten Hag will be able to rest some of his key players for the second leg at Old Trafford.

That game will take place around the same time next week.

Nottm Forest 0-3 Man Utd

90 min: three minutes extra playing time.

Bruno Fernandes’ goal will be enough for Manchester United to win this game comfortably, but it should also earn the Red Devils a trip to Wembley.

It will be incredibly difficult for Nottingham Forest to score three goals at Old Trafford without an answer.

81 min: Another goal for Manchester United would probably kill this tie, but they don’t seem too keen to go for a goal and might let this two-goal cushion slip.

Nottingham Forest must try to get one back before the final whistle.

Nottm Forest 0-2 Man Utd

78 min: Almost! A sweeping diagonal ball to the right wing sees Facundo Pellistri bring the ball under control and spray it to the side of the box.

He swings over a solid cross that Wout Weghorst wins in the air, but nods next to the back post!
