Marcus Rashford’s incredible scoring streak continued at the City Ground as Manchester United moved closer to a spot in the final of the EFL Cup at Wembley next month with a convincing 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Rashford’s brilliant individual goal gave United the lead just six minutes into the first leg of the semi-final, setting the tone for the rest of the match. It was another impressive display from the young striker, who has been in outstanding form for the Red Devils in recent weeks.

The team now has a strong advantage heading into the second leg of the semi-final, and will be confident of securing their spot in the final with another strong performance. With Rashford leading the way, Manchester United looks to be a force to be reckoned with in the EFL Cup this season.

Manchester United took a big step towards the EFL Cup final at Wembley next month with a commanding 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. Wout Weghorst added to Marcus Rashford’s early goal just before halftime, and Bruno Fernandes sealed the deal with a goal in the closing minutes. The win gives United a healthy lead heading into the second leg at Old Trafford next week, as they look to end a trophy drought that dates back to 2017.

Rashford’s goal was his tenth in as many games since returning from the World Cup, solidifying his status as one of England’s top players at the moment. The goal was also his fifth in this competition alone, putting him at the top of the leading goal-scorers list. Weghorst also impressed, scoring his first goal for the club with a quick reaction after Wayne Hennessey saved Antony’s shot. Substitutes Facundo Pellistri and Anthony Elanga both played a role in the final goal, as Fernandes drove a low shot past Hennessey.

Erik ten Hag, the United coach, was seen punching the air in celebration, underlining the significance of the third goal. Nottingham Forest were ambitious in their approach but it seems unlikely they will be able to repeat what Brian Clough’s side did in reaching the final in 1992. This game was a one-sided affair and United look to be on the right track to clinch the EFL Cup this season.
