Nottingham Forest take on Manchester United tonight in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final and we’ve looked at a predicted team.

The Reds face mission impossible at Old Trafford, with Steve Cooper’s men 3-0 down following last season’s first leg.

Pride is at stake tonight though and the Reds owe their supporters a performance after last week’s disaster.

Goals from Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes have placed United in the box seat for a place in the final against Newcastle.

Ahead of tonight’s trip to Manchester, we’ve looked at the predicted team we think Cooper will go with.

Predicted Forest team

The Forest rearguard

Wayne Hennessey will deputise for Dean Henderson in goal and for now, this could be his last game for the Reds.

Forest added Keylor Navas to their ranks yesterday and he looks set to play going forward.

Defensively, we think Willy Boly could come into the back four to replace Scott McKenna but otherwise, it’s as you were.

Serge Aurier, Joe Worrall and Renan Lodi should all keep their places in the team.

There could also be a change in midfield, as Cooper tries to make his midfield a little more solid than last week.

As a result, Orel Mangala could come into the team, with Morgan Gibbs-White injured.

Ryan Yates still isn’t right so we expect Remo Freuler and Danilo to keep their places in the team.

Leading the Forest line

Gibbs-White will leave a huge hole in the Forest attack tonight.

We expect Gustavo Scarpa to play a more advanced role than he did last week with the influential forward missing.

Brennan Johnson and Sam Surridge should get another opportunity to play from the start as Forest play for pride.

Here is how the Forest team could look this evening:
