Today, Arsenal faces Nottingham Forest with a goal to avoid a third consecutive match without a win, and Arsenal lost 2-0 to PSV Eindhoven in the European League on Thursday.
While Steve Cooper's men beat Liverpool 1-0 last weekend. While PSV Eindhoven did not stray from a fantastic performance at the Phillips Stadium, Cody Gakbo and Xavi Simmons in particular intimidated the Arsenal defense line. It's fair to say the result was coming for Mikel Arteta's side and as impressive as their winning streak was, Arsenal failed to impress Bodu Glimt. Or Leeds United or PSV Eindhoven last week and strikes by Luke de Jong and Guy Fermann mean Arteta's men have everything to do against FC Zurich. Next week to close the round of 16.
Arsenal have won their last eight home matches in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals. Arsenal have won six and lost only once in ten Premier League matches with Nottingham Forest.
Arsenal have allowed just five shots on target from outside the penalty area this season, the fewest in the Premier League.

Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest
As Arsenal head into Sunday's game in a 10-game winning streak at the Emirates in all competitions including each of their last eight Premier League matches but have failed to keep a Premier League clean sheet on that run, Forrest knows a thing or two. Astonishing adults.
He slipped to second place in the table after Manchester City beat Leicester City on Saturday. Losing his grip on the top spot is all the incentive Arsenal need to rediscover their form from the early stages of the campaign and return to the comforts of home is just what the doctor asked for an Arsenal team in need. Clearly to choose me to follow.
Not since Newcastle United in November 2010 a newly promoted team emerged from the Premier League clash in the Emirates with all three points to their name but Nottingham Forest and their new defensive flexibility should not fear any team after putting Liverpool to the sword.
Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal
Nottingham Forest enters the weekend's table as last-placed Premier League champions come to the Emirates with confidence after their spirits beat Liverpool last Saturday with Steve Cooper's side continuing Taiwo Ooni's solitary strike in the second half was enough.
Cuper has maintained defensive flexibility with his side as Nottingham Forest have conceded just two goals in their last four games, yet they have only had two victories on the road this season and have failed to score in each of their last four away games.
Nottingham Forest will surely give Arsenal a stinging test and they will try to build up the momentum gained in the last game as they will be aware of the miserable records of the newly promoted teams in the Emirates.
The tough handling takes a closer look at the standoff before the two sides' last meeting.
Steve Cooper has confirmed that Nottingham Forest have no new injury issues after Liverpool's win and so will have a similar squad of players from last weekend and are unlikely to make many changes.
