Manchester United suffered a disappointing defeat to Nottingham Forest, with Morgan Gibbs-White scoring a late winner at the City Ground. Forest took the lead through Nicolas Dominguez, but Marcus Rashford equalized for United. This loss adds to the recent struggles for United, as they have now lost four of their last six games in all competitions. The result leaves them in seventh place in the Premier League, nine points behind the top four. United’s comeback win against Aston Villa earlier in the week raised hopes of a new era, following Jim Ratcliffe’s investment in the club. However, this defeat raises doubts about the future of manager Erik ten Hag, despite claims that Ratcliffe wants to work with him. Forest’s victory also sees them move five points clear of the relegation zone, in what is Nuno Espirito Santo’s second high-profile win since taking charge of the club. United struggled to find any rhythm in the match, and their lackluster performance was punished by Forest’s clinical finishing. The result highlights the need for improvement for United, both in terms of results and performances, as the pressure on ten Hag increases.
