Opponent Watch: Nottingham Forest could be without 5 stars vs Manchester United ft. Chris Wood

Nottingham Forest could be severely understrength as they look to take on Manchester United this week

Manchester United have gained a boost ahead of their match against Nottingham Forest. As reported by the Nottingham Post, Tricky Trees could be missing five of their stars for their FA Cup clash against the Red Devils.

The team’s star striker, Chris Wood is also expected to be out due to an injury. The 32-year-old has recorded nine goals and one assist this season. Nottingham will surely be missing his contributions as they gear up for one of their most important games this season.

However, this won’t make the United fans as happy as it should. That is due to the fact that even Erik ten Hag will be shorthanded as he prepares to take on The Garibaldi.

The Dutchman is missing stars like Rasmus Hojlund, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, and Tyrell Malacia just to name a few. The biggest loss on this list has to be Ten Hag’s Danish striker.

21-year-old Hojlund was just beginning to get into form before he was sidelined due to a muscle injury. This also kept him out of the game against Fulham which Ten Hag eventually lost.

Even footing is much better than an uphill battle.

Without the Dane, Manchester United don’t have a lot of other options in attack. All of their forwards have either been wasteful or have struggled to make an impact this season. the Dutchman needs to figure out his offensive line if he hopes to advance to the next round.

While Manchester United may not be at full strength, their fans should be happy about the fact that neither are Nottingham. Hopefully, the Red Devils will be able to take advantage of their opponents’ deficiencies.
