MANCHESTER, Aug 26 ― Manchester United’s slow start to the season went from bad to worse as Nottingham Forest struck twice inside the first four minutes at Old Trafford today.

Taiwo Awoniyi burst clear from a United corner to score for the seventh consecutive Premier League game after 90 seconds.

There were just three minutes and 45 seconds on the clock when Willy Boly then found the net from Morgan Gibbs-White’s free-kick.

United escaped with a 1-0 win over Wolves in their opening game of the season despite being outplayed by the visitors.
