Nuno Espirito Santo's resurgence at the City Ground has stalled with a run of one win in four games - three of which came against lower-league opposition in the FA Cup.
But the pressure is on opponents Arsenal who have one win in five to drop to third in the table, five points off league leaders Liverpool.
This venue has not treated the Gunners too well in recent years with Forest enjoying three home wins in a row against the capital club.
Last season's 1-0 reverse mathematically ended Arsenal's title hopes and they may require all three points this evening to ensure they don't suffer a similar outcome later in the season.
