Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United LIVE: Red Devils travel to Forest looking to take an advantage back to Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg


We've seen the goals, but how did both these sides reach the last four of the competition?

For the hosts it was an impressive 2-0 win over Tottenham that got the ball rolling, followed by a 4-1 victory over Blackburn and a tense penalty shoot-out win against Wolves last time out to set up the semi-final clash.

The visitors have only played one Premier League side on their way to the semis, beating Aston Villa 4-2 in the third round, before coming out on top against Burnley and Charlton to move within one two-legged step of Wembley.

Both sides have been quick to remind us tonight of the goals that got them to this stage in the competition...

And tonight will be United's first visit to the City Ground in 24 years, but the hosts will be hoping for a somewhat different story this time around.

Back in 1999, the United side that went on to win a stunning treble arrived in Nottingham to inflict a devastating 8-1 defeat, which I'm sure Steve Cooper will know all about.

Two titans of English football face off tonight, and the pair have shared the pitch plenty of times in the past.

The Red Devils lead the head-to-head record with 49 wins from 106 encounters, with Forest winning 33 and 24 draws being played out.

United have dominated the tie in recent years, though, as you might expect - Forest's last win came in December 1994 and the last time they met in the League Cup it was a Sir Alex Ferguson-era United that won 2-1.
