Arsenal find themselves a bit on the back foot coming into this fixture against Nottm Forest. The Gunners just completed a two-match away run against bottom-half sides Leeds and Southampton that saw them only come away with four points. While some Arsenal fans have called foul over potentially poor refereeing in last week's Southampton match, the Gunners were lucky to escape Elland Road the week before with a win. Overall, four points feel about right from the two match days, and that's bad news for Mikel Arteta's side.

Normally, getting the worst team in the league at home would be the perfect bounce-back game. Especially since Arsenal have yet to drop a point at home this season. But Nottm Forest are red hot coming into this game after a massive win against Liverpool last week and will look to build on that momentum. Still, the big question remains where will Forest find some goals. Star signing Jesse Lingard is ice cold with zero goals so far this season and their top-scorer is Taiwo Awoniyi with just three. There are four Arsenal players with more goals so far than that.

Here's how they line up: 

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Odegaard, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Martinelli, Jesus.

Nottm Forest: Henderson, Aurier, Cook, McKenna, Lodi, Yates, Freuler, Kouyate, Gibbs-White, Lingard, Awoniyi.

So will Arsenal use their home fans and superior firepower to dominate? Or will Nottm Forest play the role of giant slayer for the second week in a row? Find out by watching the Arsenal vs Nottm Forest live stream this weekend.
