Bruno Fernandes made it 3-0 at the City Ground as Manchester United look to book their place in the Carabao Cup final.
With a 3-0 lead going into the second leg, you would want to be extremely brave — or stupid — to bet against United going to Wembley in February. It would take an almighty fall in next week’s second leg for Forest to comeback.
Erik ten Hag’s continued to push for a goal even with a two goal advantage. It was crucial that David de Gea would keep a clean sheet on the night, but it was another bonus to see Fernandes make it 3-0 before the end.

Fernandes’ goal really should put this tie to bed!
This win only brings Ten Hag a step closer to winning his first trophy as United manager.
