25 January 2023

After Manchester United's emphatic 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Semi-Final first leg, here are a selection of the best post-match stats from the game.

● Manchester United are the first side ever to win eight consecutive meetings with Nottingham Forest in all competitions.

Nottingham Forest lost a League Cup Semi-Final game for the very first time, in what was their 13th match at this stage of the competition (W7 D5).

After Newcastle’s win at Southampton and Man Utd’s at Nottingham Forest, 2022-23 is only the third League Cup season in which both Semi-Final first legs were won by the away side (also 1972-73 and 1992-93).

Nottingham Forest suffered their first defeat at the City Ground since September, ending a run of eight home games without a loss in all competitions (W4 D4).

Marcus Rashford has scored 10 goals in 10 games for Manchester United in all competitions since the 2022 World Cup finished, the most of any player for clubs in Europe’s big-five leagues in this time.

Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford has scored 18 goals in all club competitions this season; only Erling Haaland (31) has netted more for a Premier League club in 2022-23.

Wout Weghorst was the first player to score his first competitive goal for Manchester United in the League Cup since Andreas Pereira against Ipswich in September 2015.

Bruno Fernandes registered his 100th goal involvement for Manchester United in all competitions, scoring 56 and assisting 44.
