Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, defended resolutely and held on for a crucial win. The victory sees them move up to 16th position on the Premier League table with 37 points hence confirming their safety from relegation.

For Arsenal, this defeat is a bitter blow as they were hoping to win their first Premier League title since 2004. However, manager Mikel Arteta can take heart from his team’s overall performance this season. The Gunners have been in excellent form this season.

Overall, this was a disappointing result for Arsenal, who will now have to settle for second place in the Premier League. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, will be delighted with their win.
