1 hr before KO: The team news is in! United have named a strong side, clearly with the intention of getting the job done with minimal fuss, although Tom Heaton starts in goal in place of David de Gea as one of six changes from the FA Cup win over Reading. Jadon Sancho is on the bench, as is Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who is rested in favour of Alejandro Garnacho.

Your #NFFC side to take on @ManUtd at Old Trafford. ????

1 hr 30 mins before KO: Newcastle United beat Southampton 3-1 on aggregate in the other semifinal, so we know that Eddie Howe's men await in the final at the end of this month. The question for Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper is a difficult one: does he go for broke in trying to overturn that first-leg deficit and keep the cup dream alive, or does he leave some of his star names out to rest them for Sunday's league game with fellow strugglers Leeds United?

Old Trafford. ????

1 hr 45 mins before KO: There could be some welcome returns for the home team at Old Trafford tonight. Jadon Sancho, who hasn't played since late October, is back in the matchday squad and will hope to make an appearance at least off the bench. Anthony Martial has also returned following a five-game injury absence. We won't see a debut for new loan signing Marcel Sabitzer, though — he's still waiting to finalise the formalities of his arrival from Bayern Munich. He might well be in the stands watching, though.
