Christian Eriksen lifts the lid on set-piece routine vs Nottingham Forest

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed that they practiced the set-piece routine twice before using it against Nottingham Forest.

Man United extended their winning run to three matches in all competitions following their commanding 3-0 win over Nottingham on Tuesday night in the Premier League.

And that was their sixth consecutive win at Old Trafford in all competitions this season so far.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring against the Tricky Tree early in the first half after smashing home Christian Eriksen’s corner kick.

Eriksen would rather unleash a low cross into the area, leaving the entire Nottingham players isolated inside their own penalty box, and Rashford read the situation superbly and connected to it to beat left Hennessey with a superb effort.

The Danish midfielder has revealed that the team practiced the set-piece routine twice with Eric Ramsay, United’s set-piece coach.

When asked on how many times they trained the set piece, Eriksen said: “Twice, but different pitch, it wasn’t as wet.

“It is always different with opposition. Set-piece coach, Eric [Ramsay], I think it’s from him.”

Anthony Martial would double Manchester United‘s lead minutes after Marcus Rashford’s opener with a top effort.

Late in the second half, substitute Fred scored the third goal with a decent strike to ensure Man United ended the year with a win at the Theatre of Dreams.
