Wout Weghorst scored his first goal for Manchester United on Wednesday evening. The striker, who plays for manager Erik ten Hag’s club for just two weeks, scored in the first game against Nottingham Forest in the semi-finals of the League Cup.
Thirty-year-old Weghorst made it 0-2 in Nottingham just before halftime. The striker worked nicely inside the rebound, after keeper Wayne Hennessey still had an answer to a shot from Marcus Rashford.
It is only the third time that Weghorst has made an appearance for United, who have hired him from Burnley for the remainder of the season. The formation from the Championship had loaned him to Besiktas in the first half of the season.
Thanks to Rashford, Manchester United already had an excellent start to the duel with Nottingham. The Englishman finished after a nice rush that he started in his own half. The match started at 9:00 PM and is still ongoing.
In the semi-finals of the League Cup, the meetings are settled over two games. The return at Old Trafford is next week. The winner of this diptych will face Newcastle United or Southampton in the final of the cup tournament.
