Steve Cooper's side, who ended a 23-year exile from the Premier League, boast an excellent opening-day record, having won four of their five Matchweek 1 encounters.
That places them top of the list of current clubs to have played a minimum of five opening-day matches.
Indeed, Forest are placed third in the all-time list of 50 clubs to have played in the competition.
With a winning ratio of 69 per cent, United have been victorious in 20 of their 29 first matches.
Their credentials as fast starters were displayed emphatically last term, as the Red Devils beat Leeds United 5-1 at Old Trafford.
Indeed, Man Utd's record of 63 goals in season openers is one they share with Chelsea, who are also the next-closest Matchweek 1 specialists.
Chelsea boast a success rate of 63.3 per cent, winning 19 of their 30 maiden contests, and face Everton on 6 August.
