Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal LIVE: Gunners look to break City Ground curse and close gap on Liverpool – stream, teams

Welcome to Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal

Arsenal travel to the City Ground looking to put some pressure on leaders Liverpool with victory, while Nottingham Forest are keen to move themselves clear of the bottom three.

The hosts are still without Ola Aina, Cheikhou Kouyate, Willy Boly, Serge Aurier, Ibrahim Sangare and Moussa Niakhate as they are all involved in the knockout stages of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Nuno Tavares is not able to face his parent club this evening, adding to the headache that Felipe, Taiwo Awoniyi, Anthony Elanga and Divock Origi are all major doubts having missed the recent FA Cup tie.

Apart from Origi, all the others have returned to first-team training, while Morgan Gibbs-White in line for a recall after appearing as a substitute against Bristol City having recovered from injury.

The Gunners are without Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasu who remain at AFCON and the Asian Cup respectively.

Jurrien Timber and Fabio Viera remain out injured and will not return any time soon.

Declan Rice limbed off in their recent game against Crystal Palace and despite Mikel Arteta playing it down as ‘tiredness’ he was not seen in their most recent training pictures in preparation for tonight’s game.

Gabriel was also missing from the London Colney pitches after suffering an ankle injury against The Eagles, while Thomas Partey is still not fit enough after being snubbed by Ghana for the AFCON tournament.
