Arsenal and Mikel Arteta learned about the new rules regarding gamesmanship and time-wasting the hard way in last weekend’s Community Shield affair with Manchester City, who withstood Gunners pressure before propelling themselves into the ascendancy through a fine Cole Palmer effort. Fresh from lifting another trophy aloft in the Wembley sunshine, Arsenal begin their latest bid for Premier League supremacy at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday lunchtime. The Gunners ended their Manchester City hoodoo to win the Community Shield last weekend and are now out for a slice of revenge against the team who officially ended their title dreams last term.
However, the North London giants quickly became the beneficiaries of the newly-introduced regulations, as Leandro Trossard’s deflected effort in the 11th minute of second-half injury time preceded a second successive penalty-shootout success for the Gunners, who had also retained their Emirates Cup crown by beating Monaco from 12 yards. The age-old debate over whether the Community Shield counts as a piece of silverware continues to rage, but Arsenal’s celebrations on the day were telling, as Arteta’s men finally ended their spate of dismal defeats against the treble winners and potentially gave themselves a huge psychological boost ahead of another title charge.
Arsenal exceeded most fans’, pundits’ and journalists’ expectations during a phenomenal 2022-23 campaign, although it still only took a couple of injuries to key cogs for things to go pear-shaped, which the Emirates board have sought to rectify with a £200m+ summer spending spree. Such an outlay should also see the Gunners shut up shop at home more often than they did last term, as their 5-0 demolition job of Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day marked just their fourth Emirates clean sheet in the 2022-23 campaign, although one of the other three did come against their opening-day opponents.
A 5-0 drubbing of Forest in North London soon paled into insignificance when the Gunners travelled to the City Ground in May, as Steve Cooper’s side consigned Arsenal to a second-placed finish while deservedly retaining their Premier League status thanks to one of the most important goals that Taiwo Awoniyi will ever score in his career. An immediate demotion back down to the Championship was unthinkable for a Forest side who added 25 new faces to their roster throughout the 2022-23 season – some to greater effect than others – and Cooper also brushed aside brief talk of a termination before guiding the Tricky Trees to a second consecutive season of top-flight football.
However, Jurrien Timber gave a good account of himself at left-back in the Community Shield, while Trossard may have played his way into a start over Eddie Nketiah following a bright pre-season campaign. As for their visitors, Brennan Johnson made his highly-anticipated comeback off the bench against Frankfurt, but Cooper has played down Awoniyi’s chances of recovering from his knee problem in time for Saturday. Felipe is also out for the same reason alongside Wayne Hennessey (knee) and Omar Richards (groin), while Moussa Niakhate has only just come back to training from his shoulder problem and is unlikely to make the cut too. The newly-signed Matt Turner should make his debut in between the sticks against his old club, while a wing-back system would also benefit Ola Aina’s chances of earning his first Premier League minutes for the Tricky Trees, having previously represented Fulham and Chelsea in the competition.
