Arteta reflects on disappointing cup exit 0

Posted on January 10, 2022 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal probably felt like they had a good chance at making a decent run late in the competition in this year’s FA Cup, especially with no European football to focus on. Alas, those hopes and aspirations came crumbling down around them when they were put to the sword by a late Lewis Grabban goal against Nottingham Forest yesterday.

It was the kind of result that can certainly impact how fans view your season when it’s all said and done in May and after the full time whistle blew, manager Mikel Arteta was there to face the music.

Arsenal to face Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round 0

Posted on December 08, 2021 by Harry Kettle

The FA Cup is a competition that Arsenal fans are incredibly familiar with and that, in itself, is probably an understatement. They’ve enjoyed a lot of success in it over the years and this season, they’ll be hoping to replicate that with a run all the way through to Wembley.

As confirmed on Monday night, the Gunners will be making the trip to the City Ground in order to take on Championship side Nottingham Forest over the weekend of January 7-10. While it’s the kind of fixture they’ll be expected to win, it can’t go unnoticed that Arsenal lost 4-2 to Forest in the FA Cup back in early 2018.

It looks like Jordi Osei-Tutu could be on his way to Nottingham Forest on loan for the upcoming season. Daniel Taylor of The Athletic reports that Arsenal are in talks with the Championship side over the proposed transfer.

The young right-back joined Arsenal’s Under-18 side from the youth setup at Reading in 2015. Two years later he was promoted to the Under-23 team, where he still remains. He does, however, have a couple of loan spells away from the club behind him already. Most notably, he spent the 2019-20 season in Germany with VfL Bochum, who played in the 2. Bundesliga at the time and finished the campaign in eighth place. He started 16 league matches in the campaign and made five more appearances off the bench, scoring five times and producing three assists.

Arsenal draw Nottingham Forest in Carabao Cup 0

When it comes to the importance of the four competitions Arsenal will feature in this season, you could certainly make the argument that the Carabao Cup is going to be at the bottom of the pile. Of course, we all know it as the League Cup, but sponsorship reasons continue to ensure that money takes a firm grip on the world of football.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel to London rivals Chelsea for the League Cup semi-final first leg.

Chelsea will be hoping to gain the initiative in this tie in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The Blues clashed with Arsenal just last week, in a game that ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

Since then Antonio Conte’s side produced a rather listless display at Norwich on Sunday in the FA Cup third round and were held to a goalless draw by the Canaries. However, Blues boss Conte had rotated his squad in order for his star players to be fit for this clash.

Arsenal’s humiliating defeat at the hands of mid-table Championship outfit Nottingham Forest is one that will resonate for some weeks to come. The current holders of the FA Cup were largely tipped to defend their crown or, at least, come close to the final. However, they failed miserably, with Forest worthy winners.

Eric Lichaj opened the scoring, but his effort was cancelled out by Per Mertesacker, before Lichaj scored a stunning goal as he controlled the ball on his chest before stroking his effort into the top corner to the delight of the home fans.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rotated his squad for the Gunners surprise 4-2 defeat at managerless Championship side Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup. This is a norm for the veteran French boss when it comes to cup competitions.

Wenger has always prioritised, with the likes of the League Cup and Europa League used to field fringe and young players. That is exactly what Wenger did on Sunday at Forest. In all honesty, the team that started probably should have had enough to beat the Tricky Trees.

FA Cup holders Arsenal suffered a surprise 4-2 defeat at Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on Sunday to exit the competition at the third round stage.

The home side had the first attempt of the game. Ben Brereton got between two Arsenal defenders but failed to trouble David Ospina. The Gunners hit back at the other end soon afterwards, as Theo Walcott looked through on goal. However, the forward scuffed his effort and the danger was gone for the home side.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Championship outfit are managerless after recently sacking Mark Warburton. The sacking came about with the Tricky Trees in poor form. Forest have won just one of their last eight games in all competitions while failing to win any of their last five outings.

The home side’s poor recent form has seen the side from the Midlands drop to 14th in the second tier. Forest have also been poor on home soil in recent weeks, losing three of their last four games at the City Ground, failing to score in all three defeats.

Arsenal 10/1 to win the FA Cup 0

Posted on January 05, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal heads into Sunday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Championship Nottingham Forest confident of progressing to the fourth round.

Some have rather underplayed the Gunners record of winning the FA Cup in three of the last four years. However, it is an impressive record considering that the grand old competition is now taken quite seriously by most of the English football big guns.

In truth, the FA Cup maybe Arsenal’s best hope of collecting silverware this season. The Gunners are currently odds of 10/1 to win the trophy this season, sixth favourites behind the Gunners other top-six rivals in the betting.
