Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United: EFL Cup preview, line-up, team news, Dream 11, streaming details
Forest, on the other hand, will potentially be just 180 minutes away from a memorable trip to Wembley after returning to the Premier League this season alone.
In their last five matches in three competitions, Forest have produced two wins, two draws and one defeat. By contrast, Manchester United have won four of their last six games, drawn one and lost one. The Red Devils are the favourites, but the League Cup has caused a lot of upsets and Forest have every capability to grab the headlines.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Team News:
Both teams are likely to field a strong XI for the semi-final and there could be very little rotation. Nottingham have some injury issues with Taiwo Awoniyi, Cheikhou Kouyate, Omar Richards, Moussa Niakhate and Giulian Biancone all sidelined. Midfielder Ryan Yates is also a doubt for the game due to illness. Apart from them, Dean Henderson, on loan from United, will have to sit out for the game, with Wayne Hennessey expected to take control in front of goal.
United will be without Anthony Martial and Diogo Dalot, who are not yet fit. Jadon Sancho has joined the roster well, but is not yet expected to feature in this tie. Casemiro is likely to return to the starting XI after missing the last game through suspension. Apart from them, United are set to announce a solid roster.
