Early team news for Man Utd v Nottingham Forest | Carabao Cup semi-final second leg



Morgan Gibbs-White impressed for Steve Cooper’s side in the first leg but the former Wolves midfielder will miss this one with an ankle injury.

Forest had a free weekend due to their third-round elimination from the FA Cup, but Jack Colback and Ryan Yates are struggling with illness while Taiwo Awoniyi (groin), Giulian Biancone (knee) and Cheikhou Kouyate (thigh) are still sidelined with long-term injuries.

Dean Henderson is out with a thigh problem, although he is ineligible anyway due to the terms of his loan from United, while Chris Wood is cup-tied.

Forest have been busy in the January transfer window, adding Wood, Gustavo Scarpa and Danilo to their squad, and further additions have been rumoured ahead of Tuesday’s deadline, with Cooper confirming that Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is having a medical at the East Midlands club.

Shelvey has played twice for the Magpies during their ongoing Carabao Cup run, so would be unavailable to play on Wednesday should his move be confirmed.
