Man United team news: Fernandes and Varane set to start, Antony returns to starting eleven

Interesting news from the Manchester United team.

Bruno Fernandes and Raphael Varane won their races to be fit tonight.

The striking news of the team is the call-up of Antony and Amrabat to the starting eleven.

Both have fallen down the pecking order in recent weeks.

Ten Hag has given both men a chance to shine tonight.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Here’s how the hosts line up for tonight’s game.

Fortunately, there are no signs of Nuno Espirito Santo resting the players for the Premier League relegation battle.

Nottingham Forest: Turner; Williams, Felipe, Murillo, Toffolo; Danilo, Yates; Elanga, Gibbs-White, Awoniyi; Origin.

Man United arrive at the City Ground… but who is in the starting eleven?

Mail Sport’s Nathan Salt at the City Ground as the Man Unite team arrive ahead of tonight’s match.

The team news should be fascinating as Ten Hag looks to react to the defeat to Fulham.

We know that Harry Maguire has already been ruled out through injury, while Ten Hag confirmed that Bruno Fernandes and Raphael Varane are doubts.

Could there be a withdrawal of Antony and a possible participation of more youngsters from the club tonight?

It shouldn’t be long until we find out…

Erik ten Hag has gone on the offensive in recent days after Man United’s unbeaten run was halted against Fulham.

The Dutchman rejected questions about his future in his pre-match press conference tonight.

Ten Hag has insisted he does not need a public vote of confidence from new Man United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Ratcliffe had given a lukewarm response to questions about the future of Ten Hag after completing his £1.3bn investment last week.

“I have a contract for three seasons, so I don’t care,” Ten Hag said. I’m just concentrating on the process, so I don’t care what’s going on around me.

I’ve spoken to Sir Jim Ratcliffe many times, also Sir Dave Brailsford and others in that group, so I know where we are and I feel like they believe in me.

Interestingly, for me at least, the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals will take place before tonight’s matches.

The draw will take place at 7pm on ITV4, prior to coverage of Chelsea’s match against Leeds United.

As a result, the path to Wembley will become clearer for Nottingham Forest and Man United.

Only it will be irrelevant to tonight’s losing team…

Just when I thought Manchester United were making progress, Fulham arrived.

Last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to the Cottagers at Old Trafford immediately put the pressure back on Man United manager Erik ten Hag.

Mail Sport Man United correspondent Nathan Salt provides the perfect backdrop for tonight’s match, with tonight’s fixture seen as the start of a decisive week in the club’s season.

“A fifth FA Cup round trip to Nottingham Forest, where they were last beaten before the Fulham defeat, is a must-win, and then a daunting prospect of taking this patched-up side on the road to face City in a Manchester derby,” he said. he writes.

Welcome!

Good evening and welcome to another night of FA Cup fifth round action.

Champions Man City, Newcastle, Leicester and Coventry have all booked their places in the quarter-finals over the past two days, and four teams will complete the line-up tonight.

Erik ten Hag has taken his Manchester United team to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest in a vital match for the under-pressure manager.

Forest will be supported by a home crowd who will be happy to put their relegation worries aside for one night.

We’ll also bring you updates from another Premier League event when Brighton host Wolves.

Both matches will begin at 7:45 p.m.

It promises to be a great night of football.
