Two teams looking to recover from disappointing Premier League defeats last weekend will face off in an FA Cup fifth-round clash as Nottingham Forest hosts Manchester United at the City Ground. Manchester United, last season’s FA Cup finalists, aims to avenge their 2-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League at the end of December. Nottingham Forest, coming off a 4-2 defeat against Aston Villa last Saturday, will be looking to bounce back.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, currently just four points above the relegation zone, need to shift their focus to the FA Cup clash with Manchester United before facing league leaders Liverpool. While Forest enters the match as underdogs, they have advanced from four of their previous five FA Cup ties with Manchester United, and their recent 2-1 home win over the Red Devils in the Premier League should boost their confidence.

Manchester United, suffered a setback with a 2-1 defeat to Fulham at Old Trafford last weekend. With hopes for a top-four finish in the Premier League slipping away, Erik ten Hag’s side looks to the FA Cup as their realistic hope for silverware this season. Having won 12 FA Cup titles but not since 2016, Manchester United, who reached the fifth round by defeating Wigan Athletic and Newport County, aims to progress to the quarter-finals for a record 48th time.
