Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Ronaldo-less Manchester United will look to build on a 2-1 win over Fulham when they take on Nottingham Forest on Matchday 17. CR7 is no longer part of the team, and, in his absence, fit-again France striker Anthony Martial is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. Winger Sancho should miss out with injury, but there are no other selection worries in the home team. Raphael Varane should be given a rest following his participation in the World Cup final, as well as Argentina defender Lisandro Martinez.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to build on a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Crystal Palace. Forest, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Man Utd’s party at Old Trafford. All Henderson, Niakhate, Biancone, and Koyate are out of contention for the away team.
