Man United complete stunning comeback to record dramatic win against Nottingham Forest

Man United complete stunning comeback to record dramatic win against Nottingham Forest

Manchester United and Nottingham Forest went head-to-head on Saturday afternoon

Manchester United came from 2-0 down to complete a stunning comeback win against Nottingham Forest.

Heading into the latest rounds of fixtures, both United and Forest were on the same amount of points after collecting three points from their opening two matches.

United were looking to forget their poor 2-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur whilst Forest looked to build on their victory against Sheffield United.

In front of a packed crowd at Old Trafford, Forest were the ones who managed to hit the front first after Taiwo Awoniyi scored after just two minutes.

A couple of minutes later, Forest were 2-0 up thanks to Willy Boly’s header.

Christian Eriksen dragged United back into the match with 17 minutes on the clock and Casemiro completed the comeback by making it 2-2 at the start of the second half.

With 66 minutes on the clock, the momentum completely changed as Forest captain Joe Worrall was sent off for dragging Bruno Fernandes down.

The Red Devils were then awarded a penalty in the 75th minute after Marcus Rashford was fouled inside the box by Danilo.

United captain Fernandes stepped up and dispatched the penalty to send Old Trafford into pandemonium.


However, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown claimed that Rashford dived for the penalty.

He told BBC’s Final Score: “For me there is no way that is a penalty. In the wake of hearing Mike Dean speak in the week about refs not reporting things, it makes you ask how did VAR miss that?

“It was a clear dive.”

For the remainder of the match, United took control of the possession as they managed to hold on for a much-needed victory.

On the back of the win, United moved up to fifth place whilst Forest are in 13th. United will be up against Arsenal next weekend and Forest face another tough test in the shape of Chelsea.
