On Sunday afternoon, we have an enthralling Premier League matchup. Nottingham Forest will be looking to get back to winning ways at the City Ground. On the other hand, Manchester United will be looking to get another three points under the reign of Erik Ten Hag to enhance their top 4 and Champions League qualification hopes. Here we have a preview of the game along with all the stats you will need to make up your bet builders and we’ve also included a bet builder accumulator tip for you.
Nottingham Forest are currently in the bottom three of the Premier League and are without a win in nine. Steve Cooper’s job is under threat after their poor run of results. On many football betting sites, Cooper is the favourite to be the next manager to be sacked in the Premier League.
Race for Europe
Manchester United are currently sat fourth in the Premier League and will be looking to remain in the top four to ensure they are playing Champions League football next season. United have a long injury list and are currently without Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Alejandro Garnacho, who are all major doubts for this upcoming fixture. These injuries may well impact their top-four hopes this season.

Players to watch
One to watch for Manchester United is the English man in the form of his life, Marcus Rashford. This season we have seen a drastic change in his performances and the number of goal contributions. Last season Rashford only registered six goal contributions in the 25 games he played in the Premier League. Whereas this season, Rashford has significantly more goal contributions (19) in the twenty-nine games he has played this season. As we mentioned earlier, Rashford is a doubt for this game after picking up an injury against Everton.
Manchester United also have the Portuguese attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes has had eleven goal contributions in the Premier League this season, scoring five and assisting six.
Nottingham Forest’s top goal scorer this season is the Welshman Brennan Johnson. This season the youngster has registered ten goal contributions, scoring eight and providing his teammates with two assists.
Arsenal’s key man this season is undoubtedly Bukayo Saka. The youngster has positively impacted Arsenal this season and contributed massively to their drastic improvement. Saka has twenty-two goal contributions this season in the Premier League, scoring twelve and assisting ten.
West Ham’s Premier League top goal scorer this season is Danny Ings. The Hammers signed Ings from Aston Villa in the January transfer window for £15m. Danny Ings has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, but only two goals have come since he joined the Hammers. Ings will be looking to rekindle his form going into the last nine games of the season and will be looking to go through the remainder of the season with no more injury scares.
Newcastle's form under Eddie Howe
Since Eddie Howe arrived at the club in November 2021, Premier League fans have seen a drastic change in how Newcastle play. Eddie Howe took over when Newcastle were rock bottom of the Premier League, and he guided them to safety, finishing 11th in the league, 14 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle this season have impressed many people as no one would have expected them to be sitting in third and pushing for the Champions League places. Newcastle have won their last five Premier League games.
