Follow live reaction as Nottingham Forest knocked a woeful Arsenal side out of the FA Cup at the third round stage. Substitute Lewis Grabban scored a late winner for the hosts on 83 minutes after matching Mikel Arteta’s side at the City Ground, sliding in to finish a low cross from the right past Bernd Leno.

It was the least Forest deserved after an organised display under manager Steve Cooper. Arsenal created few chances despite fielding a strong side, with Eddie Nketiah heading the most presentable opportunity wide of goal, and were unable to respond to falling behind.

Forest will face holders Leicester in the fourth round while Arsenal’s chances of winning silverware this season comes down to the Carabao Cup, where they face Liverpool in the semi-finals this week.

Follow all the reaction from the match between Forest and Arsenal below.

88 mins: Chance! Substitute Ribeiro Dias brings the ball over to the left wing as Grabban makes a run in front of Cedric Soares. He’s fed the ball and shifts to the right for a more central shot at goal. When he eventually does hit one it’s blocked in the box.

18:54 , Michael Jones

85 mins: The home fans are in full voice now, it’s been a long time coming but finally the game has kicked into life. Nottingham Forest are just five minutes plus added time away from an FA Cup upset. Can they hold on?

18:51 , Michael Jones

83 mins: Forest have the lead! What a Johnson wins the ball in midfield and drives the home side forward on the counter-attack. He slots the ball out to Yates on the right wing as Grabban makes a run through the middle of the box. The cross from Yates comes it and picks out Grabban beautifully. He gets to the ball and pokes it past Leno to break the deadlock!

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:48 , Michael Jones

78 mins: The ball comes out to Tierney on the left wing. He’s met with a late tackle from Spence who takes more of the man than the ball and goes in the book.

A long ball comes across to Saka on the right side. He takes the ball into the box and squares it across to Lacazette. Worrall squeezes in front of the Arsenal striker and does enough to make him miss they with an attempted shot.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:44 , Michael Jones

75 mins: Fores float the resultant free kick into the box and McKenna heads it down into the middle of the box. Lacazette is back to boot the ball away and set up a potential counter-attack that comes to nothing for Arsenal.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:43 , Michael Jones

73 mins: Arsenal win a free kick just inside of Forest’s half. It’s sent into the box but gets easily cleared by the home side.

The battle between Martinelli and Spence continues with the Forest right-back driving the ball up the pitch. He cuts inside and gets cyniaclly hacked down by Martinelli who picks up a yellow card.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:39 , Michael Jones

70 mins: Charlie Patino is taken off by Mikel Arteta and replaced by Alexandre Lacazette. The substitutions from both managers are pretty attacking but who’s going to come out on top?

20 minutes to play at the City Ground.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:36 , Michael Jones

68 mins: Keinan Davis’ debut for Nottingham Forest comes to an end just after the hour mark and club captain Lewis Grabban replaces him.

Nketiah is given the ball in the box and he does well to turn to away from Steve Cook before rolling it onto his left foot and blasting a shot over the crossbar!

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:34 , Michael Jones

65 mins: Lovely interception from Jack Colback to spark Forest into a counter-attack. He passes it up to Davis and continues into the penalty area. Davis takes the ball into the left of the box before slotting it back to Garner who curls a cross into the box and sends it straight into the hands of Leno.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:31 , Michael Jones

62 mins: This is an opportunity for Nottingham Forest. They win a free kick about 25-30 yards out from goal and James Garner stands over it. He smokes it perfectly and the ball looks like it’s sneaking into the top left corner. Leno leaps across and parries it wide of goal! Another good save from the Arsenal goalkeeper.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:28 , Michael Jones

59 mins: Chance! Nketiah needs to do better here. Saka brings the ball inside from the right and lifts a pass to the back post. Nketiah drifts in behind the Forest defence, jumps and then gets caught in two minds. The ball just hits him on the head and bounces wide of the back post.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:26 , Michael Jones

57 mins: Maybe that shot from Zinckernagel will spark Arsenal into life. It was certainly the best chance of the game so far. The Gunners come forward with Saka on the ball and win themselves a corner.

It’s whipped in towards the near post where Keinan Davis gets to it first and heads it clear for Forest.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:22 , Michael Jones

54 mins: Save! Odegaard flicks the ball over to Tierney on the left and his cross into the box is easily cleared by Forest. They break down the right wing with Johnson carrying the ball past Holding. He drives into the box and pulls it back to Zinckernagel who hits a first time shot at goal and forces Leno into a sharp save low to his left!

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:20 , Michael Jones

51 mins: Arsenal haven’t been penetrating at all tonight. Their attacks have come from the wide areas - mainly through Martinelli - and then the final ball lets them down. There’s no intensity or urgency to the Gunners who seem happy to just knock the ball around the midfield.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:18 , Michael Jones

48 mins: It’s been a bright start to the second half from Nottingham Forest. Djed Spence has been a force of nature on the right wing for the home side and Arsenal have been unable to handle him. The ball comes inside to James Garner who elects not to shoot and instead sends it back out to the wing. A cross comes into the box but Rob Holding heads it away.

Second half: Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

18:14 , Michael Jones

Kick off: A reminder that there has to be a result today so if this game ends in a draw then we’ll be going to extra-time and maybe even penalties.

Arsenal restart the match with a pass back to Bernd Leno. He sends it long and picks out Saka but his first touch is poor and Scott Mckenna clears the Nottingham Forest lines.

Half-time: Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:57 , Michael Jones

45+1 mins: A rather sedate 45 minutes of football comes to an end. Arsenal haven’t been great but Nottingham Forest have had moments of joy on the counter-attack.

The game needs a goal to spark it into life. Goalless at the break.

17:54 , Michael Jones

43 mins: Forest pass the ball back to Samba and he sends it over to the right wing. Nketiah chases the ball down and slips just before his reaches the goalkeeper sliding into Samba, knocking him down and drawing boos from the home supporters.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:53 , Michael Jones

41 mins: Arsenal aren’t playing at the peak of the powers. Not by a long way, there seems to be a slackness to their play resulting in wayward passes and not many players getting into the box. Most of their crosses from the wide areas have gone sailing over the heads of everyone in the box. Mikel Arteta can’t be pleased with what he’s seeing.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:49 , Michael Jones

38 mins: Martinelli has made a few good runs into space on the left side and this time he’s played in behind. He collects the ball and passes into the box for Tierney who is quickly crowded out.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:46 , Michael Jones

35 mins: Mikel Arteta isn’t happy at all with the performance from Nuno Taveres. He’s taken the left-back off and replaced him with Kieran Tierney. If Arteta isn’t pleased then Tavares is positively fuming as he trudges off the pitch.

Zinckernagel leaves a bitt too much on Saka with a poor tackle and picks up the first yellow card of the game.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:44 , Michael Jones

32 mins: Oh that’s beautiful take from Brice Samba as Arsenal swing another corner deep into the box. Nottingham Forest’s goalkeeper comes off his line and brings the ball under control with an outstretched right-hand before sending his team flying forward on the break.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:40 , Michael Jones

29 mins: A corner for Forest doesn’t beat the man on the near post and the clearance drops for Zinckernagel. He tries to reposition into a shooting area but takes too long on the ball and is closed down but Arsenal’s forward pushing defence.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:35 , Michael Jones

23 mins: Arsenal’s best attacks have come from long balls over the top. Holding flicks one over the Forest defence this time and sends Martinelli racing Spence to chase it down. Both players are quick, Martinelli gets to it first but is quickly shoves off the ball and the Forest defender carries it away from his own penalty area. Solid defending.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:31 , Michael Jones

20 mins: Martinelli looks to break away down the left wing but overruns the ball and kicks it out of play. Arsenal haven’t really clicked into gear like we know they can. Nottingham Forest have been good, they’re strong on the ball and aren’t afraid to take the game to the Arsenal defence.

Spence wins a free kick deep in Arsenal half. Garner looks to curl the ball into the box but smokes it straight into Martinelli who’s making up a one-man wall.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:27 , Michael Jones

11 mins: That’s a nice floaty forward pass from Ben White to play Bukayo Saka in behind the lines on the right side. He carries the ball into the box and attempts to set up Gabriel Martinelli on the edge of the penalty area but Spence nips in front of the Arsenal forward and wins the ball.

Nottingham Forest 0 - 0 Arsenal

17:18 , Michael Jones

17:15 , Michael Jones

6 mins: Nearly! Lovely work from Forest who attack down the left sing Brennan Johnson brings the ball inside and passes it up to Keinan Davis who dinks the ball into the box matching the run of Philip Zinckernagel.

17:13 , Michael Jones

3 mins: Arsenal look to play out from the back but Nuno Tavares miscontrols the ball and lets it roll out for a Forest throw in.

Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen fire West Ham past Leeds in FA Cup

16:20 , Michael Jones

Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen piled more FA Cup misery on Leeds as West Ham marched into the fourth round.

Lanzini’s first-half goal and Bowen’s late strike secured a 2-0 win for David Moyes’ side and condemned Leeds to a ninth third-round defeat in the last 12 seasons.

It is now five years since the Whites have won an FA Cup match, and they rarely looked like bucking that sorry trend in a one-sided London Stadium encounter.
