Arsenal will clash heads with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this Saturday evening as they try to bounce back with a win in the Premier League. The Gunners suffered a poor 3-0 loss at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion recently, so they would be eager to pick up maximum points versus Nottingham this weekend.
Mikel Arteta will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could be inclined to make a couple of changes to his first XI for this game. Both Thomas Partey and Leandro Trossard will get a chance to impress from the start of this contest.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Nottingham Forest
Aaron Ramsdale will operate in between the sticks for the Gunners after he conceded three goals in his last league appearance. Jakub Kiwior and Gabriel will fill in as Arteta’s primary centre-halves as they try to keep the opposition at bay during the game.
Ben White will try to catch the eye as the right-back while Kieran Tierney looks to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will have to find a way to offer some decent support to the front players if Arsenal want to secure a convincing win this weekend.
Rob Holding will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard are expected to make up Arsenal’s midfield as they try to dictate the tempo of the game and orchestrate some clear-cut chances in the final third.
Jorginho will drop to the bench as he waits for his chance to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if Arteta opts to call upon his services.
Leandro Trossard will try to prove his worth on the left flank while Bukayo Saka looks to put his pace to good use on the right wing.
Gabriel Jesus will spearhead Arteta’s attack down the middle. The Brazilian forward has to find a way to get his name on the scoresheet and make a real difference for the Gunners in the final third.
Gabriel Martinelli will be sidelined for this game due to injury. However, Eddie Nketiah should be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
