Nottingham Forest team news

It’s now 62 years since Nottingham Forest won their second and most recent FA Cup title. Across the past 10 seasons they’ve escaped the third round on four occasions. Among those successful outings was a 4-2 win over Arsenal in 2017/18 – a game that saw Eric Lichaj register a brace. Forest’s current boss Steve Cooper — who has overseen just three wins across the club’s past eight fixtures — could be without a number of players, but someone who is definitely missing is Mohamed Drager; the Tunisian winger is on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Nottingham Forest predicted XI: Horvath; Spence, Cook, Worrall, Bong; Garner, Cafu; Zinckernagel, Carvalho, Johnson; Davis.

Arsenal team news

An unlucky loss to Manchester City last time out snapped Arsenal’s five-game winning streak in all competitions. The result subsequently leaves them fourth in the Premier League table. Mikel Arteta is seeking a bounce back and in doing so he’s expected to make a few changes to the Gunners starting lineup. Gabriel is suspended but there should be a place for reserve goalkeeper Bernd Leno with Emile Smith Rowe expected to come into midfield. Eddie Nketiah is likely to lead Arsenal’s attack but Folarin Balogun misses out as his loan move to Middlesbrough is expected to be completed soon.

Arsenal predicted XI: Leno; Cedric, Holding, Mari, Tavares; Lokonga, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Nketiah.

Scoreline prediction: Nottingham Forest 0-2 Arsenal
