With this win, Manchester United boosted top-four hopes

Antony's goal and Diogo Dalot's assist gave Manchester United a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

Manchester United currently hold 59 points from 30 games, placing them three points ahead of fourth-ranked Newcastle United and six points above fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Steve Cooper's Forest is now on a ten-game losing streak and sits third from bottom in the league with 27 points, only one above Everton in 17th place.





Antony scored the opening goal for Manchester United in the 32nd minute; Navas had made a stunning save to deny Martial's shot, and Antony capitalized on the rebound by poking it into an open net.

Dalot scored his maiden Premier League goal in the 76th minute, sealing the match with a fine move created by Antony's precise through ball.

United are currently without Marcus Rashford and Raphael Varane, both out of action for a few weeks. Unfortunately, Lisandro Martinez has sustained a foot injury that will rule him out for the rest of the season.

Marcel Sabitzer, who netted twice in the Europa League quarter-final clash against Sevilla in midweek, suffered a groin injury while warming up on Sunday.
