NFO vs ARS: Arsenal Team News, Possible Lineup, And Kickoff Time Ahead Of The PL Showdown

Arsenal will be bidding to keep their hopes of winning the English Premier League alive when they travel to City Ground Stadium on Saturday to keep a date with Nottingham Forest in their next game of the campaign.

The North Londoners will be going into the contest off the back of their disappointing 3-0 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion last Sunday in London, which eventually halted their hopes of winning the English Premier League title. The Mikel Arteta-led team will now be looking for a victory over the relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on Saturday to close the gap on the league leaders Manchester City.

Team News:

The Gunners have been dealt with a huge blow ahead of Saturday's visit to Nottingham Forest as Gabriel Martinelli could be ruled out of the clash, following the foot injury he picked up in their last Premier League game against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mohamed Elneny, William Saliba, and Takehiro Tomiyasu have also been ruled out of the game with their respective season-ending injuries.

Arsenal's possible starting lineup vs Nottingham Forest:

Ramsdale; Tierney, Gabriel, Kiwior, Ben White; Xhaka, Thomas Partey, Odegaard; Trossard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus.

Kickoff Time:

The English Premier League showdown between Nottingham Forest and Arsenal has been scheduled to get underway at exactly 5:30 PM Nigerian time on Saturday.

Arsenal have most certainly fallen out of the English Premier League title race and now the only thing they can do is to postpone Manchester City’s crowning. The Citizens need just one win from the remaining fixtures to become the champions so if Mikel Arteta's men lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, then Pep Guardiola's men will automatically be declared the champions.
