Nottingham Forest v Arsenal (Sun)

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been handed a three-match touchline ban and a fine of 40,000 pounds for misconduct after the club's 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last Sunday.

Wenger claimed he was "surprised and shocked" to be charged by the FA after his comments on Dean, though he wasn't any more conciliatory in the aftermath of Arsenal's draw with Chelsea on Wednesday evening.

Wenger has never lost at this stage in the competition but after a busy festive schedule, admits he will make changes to the holders' starting XI.

The Reds are probably not going to be too concerned about the FA Cup, although the fans will want the players to at least give it a go against Arsenal given that the match is at the City Ground.

"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".

Warburton departed alongside Director of Football Frank McParland and Assistant Manager David Weir after just nine months in charge, despite avoiding relegation last season and guiding Forest to 14th this season. Speaking to reporters, the veteran Frenchman said, "I will rotate a little bit because we come out of a very high loaded period".

Aaron Ramsey remains out with a hamstring injury and Granit Xhaka has been ruled out with a groin problem so Jack Wilshere is nearly certainly going to be rested this weekend after starting our last six games.

Sead Kolasinac (ankle), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Olivier Giroud (hamstring) and Nacho Monreal (ankle) all remain sidelined.

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

The FA have taken a dim view of Wenger's withering censure of Dean, but Nottingham Forest have at least seen the amusing side.

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is expected to get a rest with David Ospina coming in between the sticks as the Colombian worldwide has been our first choice keeper in the other cup competitions.

The FA on Friday confirmed that the Gunners boss will be forced to sit in the stands for Sunday's FA Cup-tie at Nottingham Forest, the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg versus Chelsea on Wednesday and next weekend's Premier League game against Bournemouth.

"Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Alexandre Lacazette won't play but the real concern is that defence".
