The Gunners have dominated the FA Cup in recent seasons and they will look to continue this dominance when they make the journey to the East Midlands on Sunday afternoon when they lock horns with Nottingham forest at the City Ground.

Over the past three years or so, only Watford have managed to edge past Arsenal in an FA Cup match and three Wembley triumphs in 2014, 2015 and 2017 have lifted the Gunners to a grand total of thirteen FA Cups, more than any other club.

It could be argued that the only reason why Arsene Wenger is still in a job at Arsenal is because of this cup success and as such, we can expect the Gunners boss to field a strong side on Sunday as he looks to remain in the hunt for some silverware.

Nottingham Forest will be hopeful of causing an upset in this weekend's third-round clash, however with the side sitting in the bottom half of the Championship table and no permanent manager following the dismissal of Mark Warburton, we don't really fancy their chances.

Gary Brazil is the man in the hot-seat - albeit in a temporary capacity - and he has a tough task on his hands this weekend. In all honesty, Forest have nothing to lose by having a go at their illustrious opponents and we envisage them getting onto the scoresheet at some point. Indeed Arsenal may be unbeaten in nine games but they have been forced to a share of the spoils in five of their last seven league outings, therefore this may not be the one-sided affair which many expect.

Arsene Wenger has a few injury worries ahead of this match, however he has a large choice of top-quality players from which to call upon and even a depleted side will almost certainly out-gun the hosts and move into the next round of the competition.
