Review
Wow, what a night. For the seond time in five years we knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round. The team was so solid today with the defence stopping a low-energy Arsenal getting even a shot on target. Djed Spence was easily the man of the match and we gave debuts to the new recent signings. Leicester in the next round!

Stats:
The draw for the 4th round was made before the match; the winners would face Leicester in the next round.
Arsenal wore an all-white strip (with no red) to support anti-knife crime initiatives in North London.
This was only the second time in 26 years that Arsenal have been knocked out in the 3rd round. The other loss was also against Forest.
