Nottingham Forest will take on Arsenal in the FA Cup after the draw took place on Monday evening.
And a number of Forest fans have been giving their thoughts to the confirmed news on social media, delighted at the prospect of another ‘cupset’ like their clash with the Gunners in 2018.
Happy with the draw?
No, getting boring now!
Forest began their busy December schedule with a 2-0 win over Peterborough United on Saturday and still have five Championship fixtures to fulfil before attention can be turned to a meeting with Mikel Arteta’s side.
Forest and the north Londoners were the final two teams to be drawn, with the tie set to be scheduled between January 7-10.
Arsenal have won the FA Cup 14 times but were dumped out at the third round when they last visited the City Ground, losing 4-2 with right-back Eric Lichaj an unexpected hero for the Reds, scoring twice back in January ’18.
Forest fans react
Forest shared the news regarding the third-round tie on their official Twitter page. This is what these Reds supporters had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘beautiful’ and others referencing Lichaj.
“Here we go……. coyr”
“JUST DO IT”
“Bring @EricLichaj back for 1 game only. Let’s do it again”
