Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest Odds: Can Arteta bounce back from draw?
When? Sunday 30th October at 14:00
Where? The Emirates Stadium, North London
Latest Result: Nottingham Forest 1-0 Arsenal, January 2022
Arsenal host Nottingham Forest in their next league game and what a game it will be. Despite the absence of Forest from the Premier League, they have still managed to find themselves facing Arsenal on a few occasions. Most recently in February of this year in the FA Cup third round. On that occasion it was Forest who came out on top, in a victory that will live forever in their history books.
Things have dramatically changed at Arsenal since this result, but that doesn’t mean Forest won’t head into the game with confidence. They beat Liverpool last time out in the league…
Arsenal will be desperate to bounce back from the draw at Southampton, if they drop points again, City will be creeping up to snatch back that top spot.
Arteta’s Arsenal suffered setback
Mikel Arteta has rejuvenated Arsenal completely, you can’t credit Arsenal enough this season. They have been simply fantastic. They’ve dropped points just twice with their most recent setback coming versus Southampton who could’ve won the game. Arteta won’t have been a happy bunny after that and we should see his team come out much stronger at the Emirates.
One positive to take from the trip to St Mary’s was the goal. Granit Xhaka scored once again which will boost his confidence even higher than it already is. Xhaka has had a rollercoaster of an Arsenal career but it’s safe to say that he is at the top at the moment.
His form has reinvigorated Arsenal’s midfield and now it looks like one of the best in the league. As reflected by their league position. If Arteta can keep his squad morale high, we will see the results continue to flow in his direction.
The Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest odds have the home side as very strong favourites. This comes as no surprise given Arsenal’s start to the season. The Gunners are 3/17 to win on 888Sport while the visitors are 13/1!

Forest full of confidence after historic win
Last Saturday, Nottingham Forest became the latest side in red to defeat Liverpool this season. A goal from Taiwo Awoniyi was enough to secure the three points. Liverpool were poor yes, but you have to give credit to Forest for what was an incredible display of defensive resilience.
They will need a similar effort to defeat Arsenal come Sunday, three points would certainly help their survival efforts but it will be very, very difficult- as reflected by the Arsenal vs Forest odds. Forest are 13/1 to win, which will make you £140 from a £10 stake! This means our Forest based pick can stay simple. Forest to win. That’s it.
Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest Odds: Our Predictions
We can see this game being closer than the odds suggest, Forest will be full of confidence and have players that can hurt Arsenal. Jesse Lingard has scored against them on multiple occasions at the Emirates and could potentially bag another.
We think it will be 2-1 to Arsenal. A respectable score for Nottingham Forest who will put in yet another spirited display.
