The Gunners have enjoyed a resurgence in recent weeks that has seen them climb into the top four of the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta’s side recorded five straight victories in all competitions before their last-gasp defeat by high-flying Manchester City on New Year’s Day.

The most successful side in FA Cup history, Arsenal have lifted the trophy on 14 occasions – most recently in 2020 – and have only suffered two defeats in their last 16 away games in the competition.

Although, one of those losses came at the City Ground in 2018, when Forest prevailed 4-2 winners at this stage.

The Championship side have won four of their last six home games in the competition, but arrive in this tie on the back of successive defeats for the first time under Steve Cooper.

The former England Under-17s boss, who guided Swansea City to the FA Cup fifth round last season, had previously overseen just one loss in his first 16 matches in charge of the Reds.
