Manchester United have Wembley in their sights as they look to finish off Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup semi-finals tonight.

Erik ten Hag’s side are in a commanding position after goals from Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes sealed a 3-0 win at the City Ground in the first leg last week.

It would take a remarkable comeback from Steve Cooper’s side, as United look to progress to their first final under Ten Hag and end their six-year trophy drought.

The winner will play Newcastle at Wembley after Eddie Howe’s side defeated Southampton to reach their first cup final since 1999.
