Arsenal begin the defence of their FA Cup crown with a potentially tough tie at Nottingham Forest on Sunday. Although the Championship side are struggling and have just sacked their manager Mark Warburton, they will definitely be up for this and will make it as tough for the Gunners as possible.

Once again, the FA Cup is Arsene Wenger’s best chance of silverware at the Emirates Stadium this season, and although he may rest a number of his key players, he should see them through to the fourth round even if it a long afternoon in the East Midlands.

We are backing an away win with a vital role for striker Danny Welbeck.

Form

Arsenal do have the small matter of Chelsea at home in the Premier League before they take on Nottingham Forest, but as things stand it is not going too well for the Gunners. Though they are fifth and well in the race for a return to the Champions League, recent draws with the likes of Liverpool and West Brom have left a bitter taste in the mouth for very different reasons lately.

After a decent start to the season, Forest have really begun to struggle and the drop to 15th in the Championship table has cost Warburton his job. They have not won in six games, with defeat at home to struggling Sunderland a particular low point. They could really use a boost in this one and should be really up for it.

Team News

Neither side has any injury concerns, other than Aaron Ramsey for Arsenal, but Wenger may ring the changes as he has done in the Carabao Cup and the Europa League this season.
