Struggling to stay out of the Champions League zone in the Premier League, Arsenal suffered a setback this Sunday when they lost to Nottingham in a modest 1-0 loss to the FA Cup.
Interestingly, the team was also knocked out of the FA Cup on Arsenal’s last tour of the City Ground in 2018. On this occasion, they lost 4 to 2 to Nottingham. The modest English club repeated this feat to become the ‘Executioner’ of the Gunners.
Due to a campaign against the deaths of young people in the United Kingdom, Arsenal took the field with almost the entire team in white uniforms, but ended up playing a disinterested match and ended.
Despite not having a great presentation, Arsenal managed to create good opportunities, especially in the last minutes of the first half. Neketia and Rob Holding had a chance to take a zero off the scoreboard, but did not hit the target.
In the second half, Nottingham began to enjoy the game and put pressure on Arsenal. The strategy paid off in the 38th minute. Ryan Yates made a fine play on the right and passed Graban, who sent it to the back of the net. At the advantage, the home team closed to confirm the classification, as it did in 2018.
Of the First Division teams on the field this Sunday, Wolverhampton beat Sheffield 3-0, while West Ham beat it 2-0 in Brazilian Rafinha’s duel with Leeds United. Tottenham, on the other hand, took the lead by making it 3 to 1 at Morecambe. Norwich, ranked at the bottom of the Premier League, beat Charlton 1–0.
