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, will be absent with an injury this time around. However, Anthony Elanga may be fit enough to return. Gunner’s midfielder Declan Rice should be available.
Nuno Tavares is ineligible to face his parent club and all six of Forest's players at the Africa Cup of Nations have reached the knockout stages, meaning Cheikhou Kouyate, Moussa Niakhate, Ola Aina, Ibrahim Sangare, Serge Aurier and Willy Boly are all unavailable.
But Forest have welcomed injured trio Anthony Elanga, Taiwo Awoniyi and Felipe back to training.
Thomas Partey has returned to full first-team training as he nears a return from a thigh injury. He is unlikely to be rushed back into action, but Partey could make the squad against Forest.
Declan Rice is expected to be fit, after coming off against Palace with tightness in his hamstring as well as Gabriel after he picked up an issue last time out.
Gabriel Martinelli will hope he has done enough to start after scoring twice off the bench in that game.
Arsenal have been really poor in recent years when travelling to the City Ground, with two defeats in the FA Cup and a 1-0 loss at the end of last season when their title charge had fallen apart.
After a stumbling run before the winter break, the Gunners did look more like their usual selves against Palace, even if the Eagles offered little resistance. Forest can be expected to put up more of a fight, but Arsenal are fancied to just about get the job done ahead of a pivotal clash with Liverpool.
The Gunners are five points behind table-toppers Liverpool and level with reigning champions Manchester City, who have a game in hand, so Mikel Arteta's side can ill afford any more slip-ups if they are to lift the trophy for the first time in two decades.
Arsenal's early exit from the FA Cup means they have had the benefit of 10 days rest since demolishing Crystal Palace on home soil, which ended their three-game winless streak.
Nottingham Forest have won two of their four Premier League games since Nuno Espírito Santo replaced Steve Cooper in the dugout last month, although they remain just four points clear of the relegation zone.
Striker Chris Wood is in red-hot form with five goals in his last four league appearances, but the big Kiwi has managed to score just once in 11 previous matches against Arsenal.
With the Gunners already eliminated from the EFL Cup and the FA Cup, Arteta's charges have enjoyed a ten-day break from their 5-0 home win over Crystal Palace, on the back of a training ca
