Marcel Sabitzer is at Old Trafford to watch Manchester United take on Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

The Austria international had a late night yesterday, arriving from Germany to seal his beat-the-deadline loan switch from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

He was in the stands cheering his new team-mates on as Erik ten Hag's Reds look to seal a place at Wembley, by completing the job against Forest, following a 3-0 first leg triumph at The City Ground.

Marcel Sabitzer watches the Reds from the stands.

The midfielder, who will hope to be available for Saturday's Premier League home game with Crystal Palace, sat in the row in front of former United men Andy Ritchie and Denis Irwin, and got a close look at Erik ten Hag's side in action.

The capture of the 28-year-old is a boost with midfielders Scott McTominay, Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek currently sidelined due to injury.

The Reds secured a Wembley date with Newcastle United with a 5-0 aggregate triumph, after a 2-0 victory on the night. Substitute Anthony Martial and Fred scored the goals.

The hunt for silverware continues, with Sabitzer likely to play his part in the push for trophies.
