"It's a possibility. It's his preferred position but at the moment I have [Sead] Kolasinac out, [Nacho] Monreal out and I don't have much choice on the left side unless I play another young boy in Josh Da Silva".

"We have to keep our level of focus, of urgency, because the third round is very hard especially when you play away from home against a Championship team".

Nottingham Forest have won one of their last 14 matches against the Gunners in all competitions (D4 L9), and lost 4-0 at the City Ground in the League Cup last season.

The FA have taken a dim view of Wenger's withering censure of Dean, but Nottingham Forest have at least seen the amusing side. "But the big teams they go for it". Not a draw in sight! But Arsenal's away form is a bit less clearcut.... Forest's official Twitter account recently recalled a previous instance of beating the north Londoners in the FA Cup.

We have numerous injuries to contend with and Wenger will want to rest as many as possible without risking defeat.

Officials warn that more than one ticket will not increase your odds and recommend playing within your means. Players now buy a ticket for $2, $3 if they add Power Play.

Following mixed starts to their seasons, both teams should be chasing the FA Cup as a happy distraction.

But the troubles do not end here for the Frenchman as he has been asked for further explanation by the FA on his verbal attack on another referee Anthony Taylor, who awarded a spot kick during the Chelsea game after Hector Bellerin tripped Eden Hazard in the box.

Wenger will play an understrength team against Forest, saying: 'Some players who played against Chelsea (last Wednesday) will play on Sunday. "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".

I personally think he won't play any of the players that faced Chelsea except AMI!

That lot should be good enough to win this, but I am certainly not expecting an easy game.
