Manchester United are hoping to bounce back from a damning defeat last time out as they welcome Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.
Manchester United currently sit 12th in the Premier League with one win and one loss from their first two games of the season.
The Red Devils began their campaign with a wholly unconvincing 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening game week before falling to a 2-0 loss away at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
The win over Wolves at Old Trafford raised far more questions than it produced answers with Erik ten Hag's men delivering a flat, uninspired performance against a side many have tipped for relegation this season.
That win was followed up with what retrospectively seems like an expected loss away at Tottenham by two goals to nil.
The first half was, admittedly, not a bad showing from Ten Hag's side but the second half collapse was extremely worrying as Spurs ran out comfortably victors in the end.
There are still huge question marks over United's squad construction and there are also massive doubts surrounding the viability of a number of the squad's biggest players at this level despite the club having spent gargantuan amounts of money over the last few years.
Summer signing Rasmus Højlund is yet to be integrated into the squad so there is hope that his introduction will lead to an overall improvement, but United's midfield is where much of the issue lies as it still looks very much out of sorts in its current construct with Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount not exactly jigsaw-like fit from a stylistic viewpoint.
Erik ten Hag has a huge job on his hands in terms of making United a side capable of challenging for the big prizes this season and his team need a big performance against Forest here alongside three points.
In spite of all their struggles they're still favourites to win but they're going to have to improve on their early season showings.
Nottingham Forest currently sit 10th in the Premier League with one win and one loss from their first two games of the season.
Steve Cooper's side kicked off their campaign with a defiant 2-1 loss away at Arsenal before beating newly promoted Sheffield United 2-1 last time out.
It's been a good start to the Premier League campaign for a Forest side that are hoping to kick on from last season and avoid another relegation battle.
Cooper's men showed a number of encouraging signs in their defeat at Arsenal having given The Gunners a run for their money at the Emirates, and despite looking shaky at times in their win over Sheffield United, with Chris Wood's winning goal coming only in the 89th minute, they'll be happy be on the board in terms of victories.
Taiwo Awoniyi, who was integral to Forest securing survival at the back end of last season, has started this campaign in great form having scored twice in his first two games so if he can build on last season's impressive displays and continue this form then Forest's ceiling will be much higher than it otherwise would be.
They've still got a bit of business they need to finalise in terms of transfers as their squad is incomplete in a couple of areas, but they're coming into this game in good shape and will be quietly confident of taking three points.
Forest lost four times to Manchester United last season, by a combined scoreline of 10-0, so while they enter this game as underdogs they'll be doggedly determined to get some revenge at Old Trafford.
For our Manchester United vs. Nottingham Forest prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
