It didn’t take long for Rashford to make an impact, with the 25-year-old scoring his tenth goal in as many games for United.

In the sixth minute of the game, the striker claimed possession inside his own half before charging towards the Forest defence.

Rashford then dribbled past Remo Freuler and Joe Worrall before firing past Wayne Hennessey at his closest post.

Speaking to talkSPORT, England legend Stuart Pearce was very impressed with what he saw from the United States man.

He said: “It was a goal from a player who is brimming with confidence.

“He picked up the ball at the halfway line, he pushed down the line with it, he decided not to go back and play upside down like you see time and time again.

“He just kept running, Freuler comes at him, Worrall comes at him. He went in between and ended up going down that access where you think it’s going to be a big deal for Forest tonight. Big goal.

Weghorst then doubled United’s lead on the stroke of half-time, the Dutchman scoring his first goal for the club as he fired into the roof of the net on the rebound.

Forest thought they had found an equalizer through Sam Surridge after Rashford’s effort but VAR ruled out their goal for offside.

However, Bruno Fernandes made it through the game, the set and the game in the closing stages with a powerful effort from inside the box.

Despite their best efforts, Forest found no answer for the entire game and will now have to travel to Old Trafford next week for the second leg three goals clear.

The Carabao Cup final takes place at the end of February, with United one step closer to returning to Wembley for the first time since 2020.

Newcastle have the advantage against Southampton in the other semi-final thanks to their 1-0 win at Saint Mary’s on Tuesday night.
