(VIDEO) Watch: Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest 2-0 Extended Highlights & All Goals 2023 HD
Manchester United reached their first domestic cup final since 2018 as a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest sealed a 5-0 aggregate goal triumph in their Carabao Cup semifinal.
The Red Devils held a 3-0 edge from the first leg and were firm favorites to progress to the final, where Newcastle United awaits.
In the end, second-half goals from the returning Anthony Martial and Fred were enough to kill off any faint Forest hopes of a shock turnaround.
Erik ten Hag introduced Martial, Rashford, and Jadon Sancho off the bench, the latter earning a huge roar from the crowd as he made his first appearance since late October. All three looked lively, but it was Martial who got the breakthrough, drilling home with his left foot after his poor pass had seen Rashford’s effort blocked.
Rashford directly turned provider three minutes later, turning the ball back across the goal following a quite brilliant travel cross from Bruno Fernandes.
Fred was the only other player in the six-yard box, and he could hardly believe his luck as he nudged the ball in with his thigh.
The victory tonight means United will face Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium on February 26
