Predicted Gunners line-up for FA Cup clash v Nottingham Forest

Arsene Wenger says David Ospina will start in goal for both Arsenal's FA Cup third-round match at Nottingham Forest on Sunday and Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg at Chelsea, and admitted he may be finally put Ainsley Maitland-Niles in midfield.

Per Mertesacker is likely to come in and if Wenger sticks with a back three then we could see Mathieu Debuchy playing on the right side of the trio as the boss will need to rest two of our centre-backs for the Chelsea game.

Meanwhile, Wenger has hinted he will ring the changes after a busy schedule over the Christmas and the New Year.

The Reds are probably not going to be too concerned about the FA Cup, although the fans will want the players to at least give it a go against Arsenal given that the match is at the City Ground.

"We have to keep our level of focus, of urgency, because the third round is very hard especially when you play away from home against a Championship team".

Caretaker boss Gary Brazil picked Ben Brereton as a central striker against Leeds, but Tyler Walker is another option for the Championship side.

"I will rotate a little bit because we have also come out of a very high-loaded period", he said.

Paul Heckingbottom is top of Nottingham Forest's list as they continue to search for a new manager, according to a reliable football journalist.

Nottingham Forest most recently played to a scoreless draw with Leeds United on January 1.

Nottingham Forest have won one of their last 14 matches against the Gunners in all competitions (D4 L9), and lost 4-0 at the City Ground in the League Cup last season.

Nottingham Forest and Arsenal will face each other at the City Ground in the FA Cup this afternoon.

I'd still expect Arsenal to progress with Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott good enough and experienced enough to get them through what looks a very awkward clash.

The Frenchman received a four-match ban for misconduct last January for pushing the fourth official after his team's 2-1 win against Burnley.
