Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Gunners title hopes hang by thread while Cooper’s side fight for survival – stream, TV
ARSENAL have tripped up in the race for the Premier League title as even a win against Nottingham Forest might not be enough to stay in the run-in.
The Gunners already had a mountain to climb by trailing Manchester City even after playing a game more.

But Brighton delivered a crucial blow on Sunday by hammering them 3-0 at the Emirates.
And to make matters worse, City’s 3-0 romp over Everton the day before has resulted in the gap being stretched to four points.
Meaning that victory for Pep’s men in their next league fixture against Chelsea, would see City be crowned as champions for a third consecutive time.
However, the Gunners have to put that the back of their mind as they need to overcome relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest first.
