Full-time: Nottingham Forest 4-2 Arsenal

17:53

Walcott can't make it three! Nketiah pounces on a dreadful pass back and tries to clip the ball over Smith. It's a good attempt, but Smith does brilliantly to get a hand onto it, pushing it over himself and sending it rolling out for a corner. Walcott is racing to get onto the ball before it does that but he can only hammer into the side netting from an impossible angle.

Four minutes of injury time have been added on.

Another change for Arsenal, Chuba Akpom is on for Debuchy.

But wait, has it been given? Dowell slipped as he struck it, was there a double touch?

Forest are embarrassing Arsenal's backline at the minute. Dowell, for good reason, fancies his chances against Mertesacker and easily beats the big German before cutting a ball across goal looking Brereton. This time he isn't there waiting for it however and the Gunners clear.

Smith denies the sub Nketiah! Welbeck does brilliantly to slide a ball through for the 18-year-old, who brilliantly spins past his man but his low drive is well saved by the Forest goalkeeper.
