Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: 20 May 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).

Nottingham Forest and Arsenal will close an exciting Premier League Saturday schedule on Saturday afternoon when they take on each other at The City Ground.

Forest took four out of six possible points from the previous two league games and are now three points above the red zone line.

It is a solid advantage with just two games to play but Steve Cooper’s men will face a difficult task this weekend when they take on the second-placed Arsenal.

The good news for the hosts is that the Gunners have practically lost the title battle with the 0-3 defeat at the hands of Brighton last weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s men are now four points shy of leaders Manchester City who also have a match in hand, meaning only a miracle can take the North Londoners to the crown.

Arsenal have won just two of the last seven league games and we can discuss their huge drop in from in the last couple of months.

We will also question the team’s motivation ahead of the trip to The City Ground. Knowing how better Nottingham Forest have been at home than on the road throughout the season, we would not be surprised to see the hosts getting a result on Saturday.
