Manchester United gained three points with a 2-0 win against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest to make it three straight victories in the Premier League and put themselves in prime position to finish in the top four on Sunday.
From close range, Antony executed a stubby finish that he was unable to actually miss. It was his first league goal since October, and he had the confidence to absolutely destroy Forest in the second half. He later provided Dalot with his first assist in the Premier League. It was also the first game for Casemiro, who came back from suspension, and Harry Maguire, who was recalled into the lineup due to injuries.
Erik Ten Hag was happy with the win despite the injuries affecting the team. “You know that when you have injuries, you have to replace them,” Ten Hag said. But as I’ve said often, I think we have more than 11 starting players, and I think we proved it today. The players on the pitch had a really good performance.”he concluded.
