Arsenal and Nottingham Forest are set for what could be a thrilling clash this weekend after last week’s action in the Premier League. Forest, who are currently sitting 20th in the Premier League, beat last year’s runners-up Liverpool 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from Taiwo Awoniyi. Similarly, Arsenal suffered their own surprise result after drawing with Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium, which saw their lead over Manchester City at the top of the table cut down to just two point.
Gabriel Jesus was notably out of form when the Gunners took on the Saints on Sunday afternoon but he has since warned Forest fans that he intends to return back to his August and September form in time for this weekend. Speaking after the match, the Brazilian international said: “The only thing I can do is keep trying, keep fighting; keep improving. I am here to score goals; I am here to help the team with goals. I understand that. Of course, the goals are coming back soon.”
Forest are, unsurprisingly, unfazed by Jesus’ recent comments and their vice-captain Ryan Yates has said “We’ll be underdogs again at the Emirates on Sunday but inside the dressing room we feel we’re more than a match for them.”
