Nottingham Forest is a professional association football club based in Nottingham, England. Founded in 1865 as Nottingham Football Club by members of the Bosbury Methodist Church, they changed their name to “Nottingham Forest” before entering the FA Cup for the first time in 1879. They have played at their current home ground since 1898 and currently compete in League One after winning promotion from League Two via the playoffs last season.,
Nottingham Forest beat Arsenal 4-2.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta apologized for his team’s performance after they were knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round for the second time in four years by Nottingham Forest.
Seven minutes from time, Lewis Grabban slipped home Ryan Yates’ inviting cross to stun the 14-time champions.
The Gunners thought to have turned a turnaround in recent weeks, but their performance against their Championship opponents was lackluster.
“We weren’t good enough,” Arteta said, “and we have to apologize.”
“We needed a lot more zeal, a lot more will to win at any costs in every single action, a lot more.” We weren’t performing at our best.
“First and foremost, I’m dissatisfied with the performance. Not with our mentality, but with how much purpose we have and how determined we are to alter the game when playing against their style is tough.
“I’ve been in games like that for 18 years, and I understand how difficult it is to get here.” The obstacles you will confront are unsurprising. But, in doing so, we must confront it in a new light.
“It is really painful. It’s a competition steeped in our past, and getting out of it is a significant challenge.”
Despite Arteta’s multiple substitutions, England winger Bukayo Saka, Norway playmaker Martin Odegaard, and in-form Gabriel Martinelli all started at the City Ground.
Forest, who have resurrected under manager Steve Cooper, now face an East Midlands rivalry and a fourth-round match against Premier League holders Leicester City.
The Championship side, who upset Arsenal 4-2 at the same level last season and haven’t lost a home match in six years, were physical right from the outset.
Cooper was pleased with his team’s tenacious effort, the latest in a string of strong showings since taking over in September.
He said, “I believe we deserved to win.” “We were up against a really strong opponent. We had a well-thought-out strategy. We wanted to push them hard and attack them on the counter, and that’s how we scored.
“I’m quite delighted with the guys’ performance and proud of them. It’s fantastic to have made it this far, and I hope the players now believe in what we’re doing.”
During a first half in which Arsenal struggled to express themselves, debutant Kienan Davis, who joined on loan from Aston Villa, created issues for the visiting defense.
After 34 minutes, Arteta removed Kierney with left-back Nuno Tavares, whose performance was summed up by a reckless back ball that visiting keeper Bernd Leno had to chest away from goal.
As he walked off the pitch, the Portuguese defender tossed aside his gloves and failed to recognize his boss on the sidelines.
Following the half, Leno denied Philip Zinckernegal when he connected brilliantly with Johnson’s enticing cross and then saved Joe Garner’s thunderous free kick.
However, with eight minutes remaining, Arsenal’s third-round demise in the East Midlands was confirmed when replacement Grabban met Yates’ cross.
For the bright Forest, it’s déjà vu.
Nearly 25,000 people filled the City Ground, and Cooper’s players were visibly encouraged by the fans, who won clashes all over the field.
Djed Spence, on loan from Middlesbrough, was especially outstanding at right-back, effectively neutralizing Martinelli.
Arsenal had been warned about Forest’s danger from crosses early in the second half, but they didn’t listen and paid the price on Arteta’s men’s dreadful night.
Arsenal loses again again.
Arsenal, who were wearing an all-white uniform in support of the ‘No More Red’ anti-knife crime campaign, had been improving in recent weeks, so this is a surprise setback.
They were unfortunate on New Year’s Day against Premier League leaders Manchester City, but they failed to show any of the same effort here.
The best the visitors could do was Eddie Nketiah’s feeble header from a cross by Saka, who was their brightest player.
Since 1996, the FA Cup champions have only fallen twice in the third round, both times against Nottingham Forest.
