Tip Reasoning

  • Arsenal have won five of their last six games in all competitions.
  • The Gunners saw their midweek game postponed, so may opt not to make too many changes at the City Ground.
  • Nottingham Forest have lost their last two games and failed to score in both of those defeats.
  • Arsenal are averaging 3 goals per-game over the course of their last four away games.

Arsenal looking to avoid Forest upset

Nottingham Forest managed a famous 4-2 win over Arsenal at the City Ground when these two teams met in the third round of the FA Cup four years ago but a repeat result looks unlikely on Sunday.

The Gunners saw their midweek EFL Cup semi-final first leg against Liverpool postponed, with that tie now set to take place on Thursday. Had that game gone ahead boss Mikel Arteta would have probably made sweeping changes for this fixture but he could now decide the best course of action will be to just make a few alterations, as they then have a three-day break until that rearranged game against the Anfield outfit takes place.

Arsenal arrive in form

The visitors saw a five-game winning run ended by Manchester City in their last Premier League outing but they were unlucky not to get something out of that game, despite being reduced to 10-men just before the hour mark.

The Gunners have impressed in their cup ties against lower league opponents this term, beating West Brom, Wimbledon and Sunderland convincingly in the EFL Cup, and should be too strong for Forest even if Arteta does decide to rotate.

The hosts will view the Championship as their priority and as such boss Steve Cooper may make a few changes to his own starting XI, although major changes are unlikely as Forest aren’t in action again until next weekend.

The hosts have lost their last two games and have failed to score in each of those games. As such, the Gunners may well be able to keep a clean sheet and a 3-0 win for the visitors looks to have a chance as Arsenal are averaging 3 goals per-game over their last four away from home.
