Match Summary and Highlight Reel: Nottingham Forest, with 10 players due to Joe Worrall’s sending-off, saw a two-goal lead slip as Manchester United roared back to win 3-2. Initial strikes from Taiwo Awoniyi and Willy Boly had put Forest in a commanding position at Old Trafford, but a resilient Manchester United side turned the tide with goals from Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Bruno Fernandes.

Astonishingly, within the first four minutes, Nottingham Forest stunned Manchester United with early goals from Awoniyi and Boly, putting Steve Cooper’s team on the path to what seemed like a certain away victory.
