Manchester United made an utterly shambolic start against Nottingham Forest but an inspirational Bruno Fernandes pulled them out of the quagmire and towards a 3-2 win. The Red Devils found themselves 2-0 down after less than four minutes as Taiwo Awoniyi was given the freedom of the city of Manchester and then Willy Boly scored with an accidental header after abysmal marking from a free-kick.

A close-range Christian Eriksen finish gave United hope and they were much better after the break, with Casemiro - assisted by Fernandes - levelling before Forest captain Joe Worrall was sent off for hauling down the Portuguese.

A lively Marcus Rashford won a penalty, which Fernandes confidently converted to give United the lead, but there were still some nervy moments in the 11 minutes of stoppage time. A much-needed win but there is still a lot of work to do.
