Team News

Nottingham Forest
Arsenal
  • David Vaughan was fit enough to make the bench against Leeds on Monday and will be in contention here. Matt Mills remains a doubt and could join Chris Cohen, Stephen Henderson and Jack Hobbs on the sidelines.
  • Arsene Wenger will be without at least seven players for Sunday's trip to Championship side Nottingham Forest after Granit Xhaka added to his injury woes in Wednesday's draw with Arsenal.
  • The Arsenal manager is expected to ring the changes at the County Ground, which should benefit the likes of Alex Iwobi, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott, David Ospina and Francis Coquelin.

Prediction

  • Managerless Nottingham Forest are winless in five matches and have failed to score in their last three.
  • Arsenal won 4-0 away to Forest in the League Cup last season and will aim for a similarly emphatic victory here.
  • The Gunners are unbeaten in nine but five of those games have ended in draws. They shouldn't have any problems here, though.

  • To be fair to Wenger, Arsenal have not previously lost a third round FA Cup tie whilst he's been manager. On the other hand, the last time Arsenal let in 4 goals or more to a team from a lower division in the FA Cup it was 1908.

  • I don't know how arsenal fans survive now a days , their title was 4th spot and winning the FA cup, even these are not achievable, lol

  • Ospina, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Holding, Nelson, Willock, Elneny, Maitland-Niles, Walcott, Iwobi, Welbeck

  • two teams without managers, so it can go both ways.

  • @bojack Nailed it.
