Manchester United secured a crucial 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Sunday, with Brazilian winger Antony delivering an inspired performance. The win saw United rise to third place in the Premier League table, four points behind leaders Manchester City and two behind Liverpool.

Forest, who are currently struggling in the league and have not won a match in their last ten games, put up a strong resistance, but it was Antony who proved to be the difference maker for the visitors. The Brazilian opened the scoring in the 32nd minute, slotting home a rebound after Keylor Navas made a brilliant save to keep out Anthony Martial’s initial shot.

After the break, United continued to press forward and create chances. Bruno Fernandes, who has been in fine form of late, came close to scoring on several occasions. In the 56th minute, he unleashed a powerful shot on the run, which Navas did well to push out of danger. Four minutes later, he tested the Costa Rican goalkeeper again with a well-placed effort, but Navas was up to the challenge once more.

However, it was Antony who once again provided the spark that United needed. In the 76th minute, he played a perfectly weighted through ball to Diogo Dalot, who ran onto it and calmly slotted the ball past Navas to score his first Premier League goal for the club.

Speaking after the match, Fernandes stressed the importance of the team’s result and their aspirations to secure Champions League football next season. “The result is the most important for me,” he said. “I want to get points because we want to be in the Champions League next season… and I want to get my goals, but the team comes always first.”

For his part, Dalot was overjoyed with his goal and its impact on the match. “It was special. At that moment, the goal was important as well,” he told Sky Sports. “I think with 2-0 we were a bit more comfortable in the game. It’s always special to score for this club but I’m more happy with the result.”

Despite the win, there are still areas for United to improve. The team struggled to create clear-cut chances at times, and the defense looked shaky on occasion. However, the win will give the team a much-needed boost of confidence as they look to continue their push for the top of the table.

Meanwhile, Forest will be left to rue missed opportunities and will need to find a way to turn their fortunes around if they hope to avoid relegation this season. With only a few months left in the campaign, every match will be crucial for both teams as they look to achieve their respective goals.
