Manchester United completed a Carabao Cup semi-final victory over Nottingham Forest to set up a Wembley final with Newcastle United on 26 February.
Wout Weghorst nearly stretched their lead just before half-time but headed against the post from Casemiro's cross.
Substitute Anthony Martial scored from 10 yards out after 73 minutes, before Fred added a second from close range to secure a Wembley place.
United have not won a trophy since their Europa League success under Jose Mourinho in 2017 and have since lost in both the FA Cup final in 2018 and Europa League final in 2021.Follow live coverage of the EFL Cup semi-final second legMan Utd news and fan views all in one placeFollow all things Nottingham Forest
