Arsenal have been eliminated from the FA Cup after losing to Nottingham Forest!

Forest picked up a major victory thanks to Lewis Grabban’s winner on 83 minutes.

That means they are going to face Leicester in the competition’s fourth round.

The Championship side are set for another tough encounter as they will take on the FA Cup holders.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta hook Nuno Tavares just 34 minutes into Arsenal’s FA Cup defeat.

Tavares was left fuming after his number was held up in the first half of the third round tie against Nottingham Forest.

The 21-year-old left-back angrily took off his gloves as he realised he was in for an early shower, flinging them to the floor as he left the pitch.

And Arsenal legend Ian Wright was critical of Tavares’ reaction, while on punditry duty for ITV, saying: “He started very poorly with this bad backpass, and with this one you look at his reaction.

“He is coming off, he’s throwing his gloves down, I think this is the wrong manager to do this with.

“The disrespect the is showing at the minute is something Mikel Arteta won’t like, he shouldn’t be acting like that with the performance he put in.”

Meanwhile Roy Keane added: “Why is he upset? He must know, he is in front of the dugout, he was sloppy in everything he has done.

“OK, a player can make a mistake, but that sloppiness, a lot of that is down to his attitude, the way he started the game. And you cant start a game like that, you get dragged off.”
