Why you should back Arsenal
After scoring a total of two goals over their previous three Premier League matches, the Gunners showed why they are one of the top offensive teams in the league by erupting offensively against Crystal Palace. Winger Gabriel Martinelli and defender Gabriel both recorded a brace in the triumph while winger Leandro Trossard ended his eight-game scoring drought as Arsenal produced five goals for the second time in 2023-24. The 22-year-old Martinelli scored twice in extra time to pull even with Trossard, captain Martin Odegaard and midfielder Kai Havertz for third on the team with four goals.
The quartet trails Bukayo Saka, who leads the Gunners with six goals, and Eddie Nketiah, who has recorded five. Both players tallied in Arsenal's season-opening win against Nottingham, with Nketiah opening the scoring in the 26th minute and Saka converting six minutes later. The 22-year-old Saka, who notched a career-high 11 assists last campaign, is tied for third in the Premier League with six this season. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Nottingham Forest
The Tricky Trees are led offensively by forward Chris Wood, who is tied for 10th in the EPL with eight goals. The 32-year-old has converted in three of his last four matches, including a 3-1 victory at Newcastle on Dec. 26 in which he registered a hat trick. Wood hasn't reached double digits in goals since accomplishing the feat in four consecutive seasons with Burnley from 2017-21.
Nottingham are hoping to regain the services of Anthony Elanga, who is battling a thigh injury and is questionable for Tuesday's contest. The 21-year-old Swedish winger is tied for second on the club with four goals and seventh in the Premier League with six assists. Brazilian midfielder Danilo netted his first goal of the season in the Tricky Trees' loss to Brentford, while midfielders Morgan Gibbs-White and Nicolas Dominguez doubled their totals for 2023-24 by converting in the team's 2-1 triumph over Manchester United on Dec. 30.
