Date set for start of Arsenal’s FA Cup defence

5

Arsenal’s trip to Nottingham Forest has been selected for live broadcast by BT Sport and will be played on Sunday 7 January.

The match will be a 4pm kick-off and comes three days after we entertain Chelsea in the league.

We played Forest in last season’s EFL Cup, spanking them 4-0 courtesy of Lucas Perez’s brace and strikes by Granit Xhaka and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Gunners have enjoyed unparalleled success in English football’s favourite knockout competition winning the tournament 13 times so far.

Yep, of course he has. I’m a year behind the times. I shall sit in the corner facing the wall for the rest of today.
