Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal Analysis
Nottingham Forest Preview
It hasn’t been the start to the season that the Forest roster would have been hoping for, as they are still battling for points at the wrong end of the standings. They come into this round of matches sitting 16th after losing three of their last five matches.
Despite that negative run of results, Forest are still four points clear of the bottom three places in the table. But, a return to winning ways, after suffering a loss in their latest match, will require in the competition.
Forest’s home record in this fixture deserves respect, as they have won each of their last three home matches against the Gunners across all competitions. Their most recent home win against Arsenal was a 1-0 success last term.
But, Forest are among the weakest sides based on the EPL team stats after scoring the opening goal. They have dropped a staggering 46 points from winning positions since the start of last season, eleven more than any other team.
There will be pressure on Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal side this week, as they can’t afford to lose any more ground on the top of the standings. The Gunners currently sit five points off the top, and they have won just once in their last four matches in the Premier League.
However, they have a positive overall record against Forest after winning five of their six matches against their rivals in the Premier League. They will also be looking to achieve a first league double over their East Midlands opponents since 1998-99.
The Arsenal scores this term have shown their excellent defensive record, as they have managed to keep a league-high of eight clean sheets. But, they will be looking to keep shutouts in successive matches for the second time this season on Tuesday.
More will be expected by Arsenal’s stars based on the EPL player stats, as they have been underperforming on the road. The Gunners have won just twice in their last seven away from the Emirates, and they are without a victory in three.
