'When Bruno took the free-kick, I knew something was going to happen'

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana says that as soon as Bruno Fernandes put the ball down to take a late free-kick against Nottingham Forest, he knew it was going to result in a pivotal moment for the Reds at The City Ground.

Our skipper's delivery made its way onto the head of Casemiro, who once more scored in a big moment for Erik ten Hag's team, sending United into the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.

Andre also played a key role, denying Nuno Espirito Santo's side on five occasions as we kept a clean sheet and laid foundations from which Casemiro's late winner could occur.

After the game, Onana expressed his pride to MUTV.

Andre Onana hopes the win at Nottingham Forest can help the Reds push forward this season...

"Of course, it is a great feeling, especially the way we won today.

"It was not an easy game and when Bruno took that free-kick I knew something would happen.

"Great feeling, great way to win and we are now focused on the coming games."

Andre hopes this victory can give the Reds confidence going into Sunday's Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium, as we seek to gain the bragging rights over Pep Guardiola's team.

"We all know how important this game is for us," added the Cameroon international. "[It is important] for the club, for the city, so we have to be ready for them.

"We are Manchester United. We know it is not going to be easy but we will fight. I know my guys and I know we will fight there and we will see what will happen.

"We train every day to play these kinds of games. It is a very exciting game. We all know who we are so we will be ready for them."
