Arsenal draw Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round

BFG: It wasn't the Mertesacker final, it was about the team

Arsenal have been drawn away to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round.

The last the sides met was last season in the EFL Cup, and the Gunners ran out 4-0 winners with goals from Lucas Perez (2), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Granit Xhaka.

It’s been 25 years since we met in the cup, with Arsenal winning 2-0 at Highbury on the way to lifting the cup in 1993 – Ian Wright scored both goals on the day.

It’s a chance to reunite with former legend Armand Traore, and Forest are currently 13th in the Championship.

The game will take place over the weekend beginning Friday 5th January, 2018.
