Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds

Arsenal tonight have the chance to move to within two points of the top of the Premier League when they travel to face Nottingham Forest this evening.

With Liverpool not in action until they host Chelsea on Wednesday, the Gunners can close the gap for at least 24 hours and keep confidence high ahead of their showdown with Jurgen Klopp's side next weekend.

Arsenal have had more than a week off since they were last in action, cruising past Crystal Palace at home, but this is set to be a tougher test for Mikel Arteta and his players, at a ground they have been beaten on in each of their past three visits.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal prediction

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.

Arsenal to win, 2-1.
