  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! NELSON SCORES ON THE REBOUND!!!!! 2-0 ARSENAL!!!!! The Gunners score a vital second as Nelson converts second time around after seeing his first strike saved. Arsenal cut open the Forest defence as Partey releases Xhaka in the final third. He offloads to Jesus, who keeps the ball moving to Nelson in the inside-right channel. He steps past Freuler to shoot on his left foot. Henderson makes a good save, but the rebound falls kindly for Nelson to hammer home.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! NELSON DOES IT AGAIN!!!!! 3-0 ARSENAL!!!!!!! The substitute notches his second of the game with a close-range finish. Arsenal work the ball well in tight quarters between Odegaard and Jesus in the inside-right channel. Jesus steers a cross to the near post where Nelson makes the run ahead of Yates to convert on his right foot. What an impact off the bench.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! PARTEY SCORES A STUNNER!!!!! 4-0!!!! Partey scores the goal of the afternoon so far with a brilliant curling finish to find the top-right corner. Nelson is the architect on this occasion as he rolls an offload to the edge of the box for Partey to fire at goal. He bends his effort around two Forest defenders before finding the back of the net, leaving Henderson with no chance.
