With another controversial penalty awarded against his side in their game against Chelsea in the midweek - Hector Bellerin the accused this time after a disputed challenge on Eden Hazard - it's best not to think about Wenger's response should another decision go against them this weekend.

The third round of the competition marks the introduction of England's top teams to the competition. Speaking to reporters, the veteran Frenchman said, "I will rotate a little bit because we come out of a very high loaded period".

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

Aaron Ramsey remains out with a hamstring injury and Granit Xhaka has been ruled out with a groin problem so Jack Wilshere is nearly certainly going to be rested this weekend after starting our last six games.

The US team regular and Forest's player of the year last year moved to Nottingham after a stint at Aston Villa, and he's both productive and well-loved in Nottingham.

Sead Kolasinac (ankle), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Olivier Giroud (hamstring) and Nacho Monreal (ankle) all remain sidelined.

Serena also said that she was disappointed to withdraw but looked forward to returning in the future. This was her 23rd Grand Slam singles title, surpassing Steffi Graf's Open Era record of 22.

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

The Gunners are reigning champions of the world's oldest cup competition, having defeated Chelsea in last season's final, and they will be hoping to win their fourth FA Cup in the last five years.

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

"I am concerned about Arsenal here", Nicholas told Sky Sports.

Arsene Wenger has never been eliminated in the third round of the FA Cup - Arsenal's last failure to progress was in their last third-round tie before Wenger's appointment, losing to Sheffield United in 1995/96. That means Calum Chambers or Mathieu Debuchy could be drafted into defence.

He said, "The more often we get into good areas, the quicker that will improve".
