Arsenal bottled their chance to make another push for the Premier League title after losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground stadium on Saturday evening.
An early 19th-minute-goal from Nigerian star, Taiwo Awoniyi gave Steve Cooper’s men the lead.
The Gunners pushed for an equalizer before the game weaved into halftime. They had 81% ball possession, registering 2 shots on target.
Forest only had 19% of the possession.
Arsenal again pressed harder in the second-half, but without looking threatening at all. It ended 1-0 when Anthony Taylor blew the whistle in the dead of the 90th minute.
