Former Middlesbrough forward Jan Fjortoft has made a bold prediction ahead of Nottingham Forest’s clash with Arsenal on May 20th. According to Fjortoft, Forest will defeat the Gunners in their upcoming Premier League match at City Ground.
Arsenal is currently facing an uphill battle to clinch the Premier League title this season. Mikel Arteta’s men are four points behind Manchester City, who can seal the league title if they beat Chelsea on Sunday. Arsenal suffered a significant setback in their title bid after losing 3-0 to Brighton at the Emirates last weekend.
The Gunners are currently sitting second in the Premier League standings with 81 points from 36 matches. Speaking on ESPN fc, Fjortoft posited that Arsenal has lost the title mentally. “I think Nottingham Forest will win it,” Fjortoft said. “I still think it’s a big challenge for Arsenal after a great away game at Newcastle, losing to Brighton, now more or less mentally has lost the Championship. So I think that Forest with everything to play for can beat Arsenal.”
Arsenal has won the Premier League 13 times in their history, but Fjortoft believes that Forest has what it takes to defeat the Gunners. Nottingham Forest is currently fighting to avoid relegation and will be eager to secure a win against Arsenal to boost their chances of survival.
In conclusion, Fjortoft’s prediction may come as a surprise to many football fans, but only time will tell if his prediction will come true. The Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal match is set to be an exciting encounter, with both teams fighting for different objectives. Arsenal will be eager to bounce back from their recent defeat and keep their title hopes alive, while Nottingham Forest will be fighting to secure a much-needed win to avoid relegation.
