Match Preview

Arsenal will be the first title challenger to resume their campaign in the Premier League following the winter break. The Gunners currently sit third in the standings, and they are five points behind Liverpool. A win is essential for Mikel Arteta’s side at the City Ground, as a loss could see them drop out of the Champions League spots this week.

Arsenal ended a poor run of form in their previous match, as they landed victory against Crystal Palace. That success ended a four-match winless run across all competitions. It was their best performance in recent months, with the Eagles having no answer for Arsenal’s excellent play in the attacking third. Maintaining that momentum will be key this week.

This is also a huge fixture for Nottingham Forest this weekend, as the East Midlands side continue to battle for points at the wrong end of the standings. Forest come into the midweek round after suffering a loss in their previous match against Brentford. That outing started well after Forest took the lead, but a resurgent Bees were able to turn the game on its head.

That loss means that the East Midlands giants sit just four points clear of the relegation places. However, they have picked up victories in two of their last three matches in the competition. Meanwhile, Forest will have fond memories of this fixture from last season after landing a 1-0 home win against the Gunners to secure their Premier League status.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal Prediction

We could see this clash being a cagey affair between Forest and Arsenal on Tuesday. But, the Gunners looked back to somewhere near their best in their most recent match, and it looks hard to bet against the Gunners this week.
