Nottingham Forest vs ArsenalEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 May 20, 2023, City Ground
ARSENAL'S season has spluttered somewhat to a disappointing end and they could eventually concede an inevitable title defeat this week at Nottingham Forest.
The Gunners can still point to a season that practically no one saw coming and it will be anything but a disgrace to finish second to an outstanding Manchester City side.
But they will be deeply disappointed with the way they ran out of steam after looking so impressive for so long and last week's 3-0 home defeat to Brighton had the feeling of a game too far for them.
However, they looked classy enough in their 2-0 way at high-flying Newcastle United the previous week.
For hosts Forest, they are currently three points clear of the relegation zone with two games left, but daren't risk a trip to Crystal Palace on the final day of the season needing something to survive.
They are two different teams this season – a respectable mid-table on their home form and bottom on away form with just one win on the road from Nottinghamshire all season.
They've collected some notable scalps at their home ground and even Manchester City failed to win here, so it should be a tricky encounter for Mikel Arteta's team.

Forest have gone goal crazy recently too in their games and have been involved in 23 goals in their last seven matches. There should be plenty here too with Forest expected to go for it.
