The Premier League returns in full today after the winter break and FA Cup ties. Nottm Forest vs Arsenal features two teams competing at either end of the table — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Nottm Forest have seen an uptick in performances and results since the arrival of Nuno Espirito Santo, beating both Newcastle and Man Utd. They're scoring plenty of goals but are struggling to keep a clean sheet and the relegation zone beckons.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have aspirations at the other end of the table. They comprehensively hammered Crystal Palace last weekend, netting five times. The Gunners won’t be happy to have exited the FA Cup so early, but that defeat to Liverpool gave them a weekend off. Will they be rested? Or will the speculation over Mikel Arteta’s future put them off their stride?
Last season, Nottm Forest won this fixture and secured Premier League survival. The goalscorer on that day, Taiwo Awoniyi, is absent with an injury this time around. However, Anthony Elanga is fit enough to return to the bench. Gunner’s midfielder Declan Rice is also back.
Here's how they line up:
Nottm Forest: Turner, Montiel, Omobamidele, Murillo, Toffolo, Mangala, Danilo, Williams, Gibbs-White, Dominguez, Wood
Arsenal: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Rice, Smith Rowe, Odegaard; Saka, Martinelli, Jesus
On paper, this should be another straightforward win for Arsenal, but the visitors have a poor record at the City Ground. Make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.
