  • Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough and assistant Peter Taylor react during a League Division One Match between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest at Villa

Wenger has been handed a three-match touchline ban and a £40,000 fine following a misconduct charge from the Football Association over comments he made about the refereeing of the game against West Brom.

Arsenal go into this game managerless - well, temporarily, anyway, as Arsene Wenger sits out the first of his three game ban for abusing the officials a couple weeks ago.

The odds are stacked heavily in the favour of Arsene Wenger's side; the Frenchman has never lost a third-round tie, while Forest have only one a single one of their last 14 matches against Arsenal.

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

He said: "I've been involved in some big games, like the Derby games and playing against Ipswich on the final day of last season in terms of what it meant, but I think if I am selected playing Arsenal at the City Ground is one I will look back on for years to come".

"It's always hard to start well in the competition and when you play away against a Championship team - it's always very intense and the Championship teams are ready to face you".

North, South Korea to meet for talks Tuesday
North Korea has announced it will reopen a key cross-border hotline with South Korea for the first time in two years. North Korea asked for further negotiations about the meeting to be carried out via documented exchanges, Baik said .

Nottingham Forest striker Daryl Murphy is an injury doubt having come off in the home defeat against Sunderland.

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

I am concerned about Arsenal here.

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.

Despite the Gunners excellent home record, they have won just 3 of their 11 away League games this season, but adversely Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 10 away games in the FA Cup, and even more if you include our Wembley semis and Finals!

"We had a normal training session today and the players have been bright and noisy, which is a good indication they're happy, so they got on with their work".
