Almighty Arsenal Crash Out of FA Cup

FA Cup holders Arsenal were unexpectedly dumped out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest on Sunday, January 07, 2018 losing in a dramatic tie 4-2 in the biggest shock of the third (3rd) round.

 

Eric Lichaj scored two times for the home team in the first 45 minutes either side of a Per Mertesacker goal before Ben Brereton successfully converted from the penalty spot to bless Forest with a 3-1 lead after the break time.

 

Danny Welbeck gave the 13-time winners hope with just over ten (10) minutes to go but Kieran Dowell got the ball inside the net from the penalty spot again to seal a good 4-2 win for the second-tier side over the Premier League visitors.
