Nottingham Forest secured survival in the English top-flight division last season, finishing 16th - just four points above the danger zone. The primary problem last season was their terrible road record. This season, they are only slightly better in that department, but enough to keep them away from the danger zone once again, at least for now, as they are four points away from the relegation zone. The general impression is that the Forest are better than the teams currently in the danger zone.

Arsenal blew the opportunity last season to stop City's domination due to a terrible season finish. This year, the Gunners held the top spot after 18 rounds, but after winning only one point in three games before the New Year, they dropped in the standings. Now, they are 3rd with 43 points, but still five points away from Liverpool and the top spot. However, they will face the Reds in early February and will have the chance to close the gap. But firstly, the Gunners have to beat Nottingham. 

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal pick: Both teams to score

Nottingham are in pretty good form in the last two months, losing only once in the last six games. Considering Arsneal's terrible form, we believe that the Forest can score at home, where they average 1.4 goals per game. On the other hand, their defense was far from impressive both at home and away from it. In ten home Premier League games, Forest had only one clean sheet, and we do not think they will keep a clean sheet versus one of England's best teams.

With a 5:0 win over Crystal Palace, Arsenal stopped their terrible streak when they won one point in four games. But the Gunners generally play well against teams from the bottom half of the league and have won all games vs teams from 14th to 20th place on the league's table. So, scoring at least once here is an entirely real scenario. 

In the previous h2h game, we have seen a 2:1 for Arsenal at Emirates Stadium. Considering the previous h2h game and everything above, we believe that both teams will score in this Premier League duel.
