Our prediction: Nottingham Forest v Arsenal

Arsenal will field their crop of youngsters once again in a domestic cup competition. Eddie Nketiah – fresh from scoring four goals against Sunderland in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals – will relish the opportunity to impress again.

However, Forest are not to be underestimated in this one. They boast a solid squad with ambitions of reaching the Premier League this year.

Away trips to promotion-chasing Championship teams are among the toughest ties to be handed in domestic competitions and Forest could do enough to force a replay at the Emirates here.

Our prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Arsenal (6/1 at bet365)
