The Sunday, January 9, third-round tie staged at City Ground saw Mikel Arteta heavily rotate his squad, with Charlie Patino, Eddie Nketiah, and Sambi Lokonga all starting. However, the Gunners were unable to see off the hosts as they were completely dominated for the better part of the encounter. So dominant Forest were that Arteta was forced into an early tactical tweak as he withdrew Nuno Tavares in favour of Kieran Tierney.
