Start time, TV schedule and how to watch FA Cup online

08 January 2018

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that former Nottingham Forest boss Brian Clough was "on another planet" when the Frenchman started out in management.

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.

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

Gary Brazil is in temporary charge at Forest following Mark Warburton's dismissalWhat time is kick-off? "So we have four days between Chelsea and Forest so that is [not] quite ideal and after it will be shorter between Sunday and Wednesday but after we have four days again so I can rotate in a little bit in a soft way".

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

While Wenger will shuffle his pack, he is certain to be without Granit Xhaka due to a groin injury.

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

Wenger will serve his latest ban at Arsenal's FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, the first leg of the League Cup semifinal against Chelsea on January 10 and the league game against Bournemouth on January 14.

What's more he believes that replays are one of the reasons for that success in the competition.

Attack: Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are expected to be rested while Alexandre Lacazette should also be given a breather after starting throughout the festive period. Per Mertesacker will come back in because Calum Chambers is absolutely broken.

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.
