- Welsh association football manager and former player
Forest, who have undergone an impressive turnaround under the stewardship of Steve Cooper since the sacking of Chris Hughton, beat Arsenal the last time the two met in this competition with a famous 4-2 victory as the Arsene Wenger era came to a close.
Those memories, as well as their rapid-fire improvement under Cooper, should have Forest feeling confident. Still, this is a different Arsenal side to the one beaten so easily at the City Ground in 2018.
While it seems reasonable to expect changes, Mikel Arteta’s young team have shown the kind of inner resilience not at all apparent in the Wenger years.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The FA Cup game is scheduled for a 5.10pm GMT kick-off on Sunday January 9 202.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal prediction
In the past, this was exactly the kind of game one would expect Arsenal to slip up in.
Still, even with changes in mind, the Premier League side should have too much.
Arsenal to win 3-1.
