Nottingham Forest Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Nottingham Forest have relied heavily on their home form since securing promotion back to the Premier League in 2022 and they have won their last three meetings with Arsenal at the City Ground.  The Gunners, for their part, are struggling on the road, winning just three of their last 11 away fixtures.

Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

Forest have something of a hoodoo over Arsenal at the City Ground and their home form since returning the Premier League suggests they can get something from this game.  They have also scored twice in all three of their home matches under Nuno Espirito Santo. However, they will still be facing an Arsenal side challenging for the title, so a 2-2 draw would not be the worst result.

Chris Wood To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Chris Wood looks like a new player following Nuno Espirito Santo’s arrival in the Nottingham Forest dugout, scoring six in his seven matches under the Portuguese. He is certainly capable of adding to that tally against Arsenal.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Nottingham Forest have won their last three home matches against Arsenal
  • The Gunners have won just three of their last 11 away games
  • Chris Wood has scored six goals across Forest’s last seven matches

Forest hold City Ground hoodoo over Arsenal

Nottingham Forest have improved following the arrival of Nuno Espirito Santo as manager, losing just two of their seven matches under the Portuguese and recording notable wins away at Newcastle and at home to Manchester United.

The City Ground has certainly been a strong part of Forest’s armoury since their return to the Premier League in 2022, as 42 of the 58 points they have picked up in the top flight since then have come on home soil.

That run includes a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in last season’s corresponding fixture and the Tricky Trees have triumphed in their last three home meetings with the Gunners, which will fill them with belief that they can at least avoid defeat on Tuesday.

Gunners struggling for away form

Arsenal emphatically snapped a run of just one win in seven across all competitions with a 5-0 home success against Crystal Palace last time out, but their recent struggles on the road are yet to be rectified.

Mikel Arteta’s side are without a win in four away games, while they have recorded just three victories across their last 11 road fixtures, a run that dates back to the end of September.

The Gunners have also kept just one clean-sheet during that run, while Forest have scored twice in all three of their home games under Nuno – this one could end in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Wood becoming Forest’s main man

New Zealand international Chris Wood appeared to be heading for the Forest exit door prior to Nuno’s arrival, but he has received a new lease of life under the Portuguese, scoring six in his last seven games.

The highlight of that run was undoubtedly his hat-trick away at former club Newcastle, but he also has previous when facing Arsenal, as he scored in Burnley’s 1-1 draw with the Gunners during the 2020/21 season.

Given his good form, nobody should be surprised if Wood were to score in another draw with Arsenal, this time in Forest colours, on Tuesday.
