Arsenal News and Form – Gunners to survive tricky home tie?

The Gunners were pushed to their limits on the weekend in the Premier League. Having been reduced to 10 men and trailing Aston Villa 2-1 at the Emirates, Arsenal mounted a great comeback to win 3-2. However, the fact that they fell behind twice in the game highlights the problems that they are having defensively. It has been one clean sheet in five games from them now. That one clean sheet came in their 3-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League when the Gunners sent out a youthful team.

1-1 HT Correct Score


There will be the temptation to send out the younger players here too. Arsenal will face a tough league game against Man Utd on the weekend. While their defence is nothing to write home about, Arsenal are scoring well. They have netted at least two goals in each of their last four games in all competitions. It has been only two defeats in their last nine games in the League Cup. Those two defeats were both at home against fellow Premier League opposition.

Nottingham Forest News and Form – Will Forest upset Arsenal?

It has been a good season in the Championship so far from Nottingham Forest. They are sitting in sixth place after collecting a league success on the weekend over the struggling Barnsley. So they are going well enough to suggest that they can give Arsenal a good test at the Emirates. Nottingham Forest beat Fleetwood in the first round hit season’s League Cup before seeing off Derby 3-0.

Both of those were home wins with clean sheets. Nottingham Forest have lost their last two League Cup away fixtures though. They crashed out on a visit to Burton last season with a 3-2 loss. Nottingham Forest have no clean sheet in their last six away games in the League Cup. But can they exploit Arsenal’s dodgy defence?
