Three things spotted in Man United training as Jadon Sancho hint dropped ahead of Nottingham Forest clash

Manchester United were back at Carrington on Monday as they prepare for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Nottingham Forest.

The Reds will be desperate to bounce back quickly from Sunday’s 3-2 defeat at Arsenal, a result that left level on points with Newcastle United and six above Tottenham Hotspur in fifth. Erik Ten Hag’s side looked set to leave the Emirates with a point before Eddie Nketiah’s gut-wrenching 90th-minute winner.

But with this season’s fixture list as congested as ever, and with United still competing in every competition possible to them, there is no time to dwell on defeats, and Ten Hag had many of his players back at Carrington earlier today before they head to the City Ground.

Many of those who featured on Sunday were absent from full group training for obvious reasons, but the presence of Casemiro will be welcome relief for United fans who saw their midfield struggle in North London. The 30-year-old was suspended for that clash after picking up a fifth booking in the midweek draw at Crystal Palace, and was sorely missed.

The silver lining of the Brazilian’s absence is that he will be fresh and raring to return come Wednesday, allowing Ten Hag to have arguably his most influential player this season available at the City Ground. Casemiro was spotted as part of a tight possession drill alongside Fred and Brandon Williams.
