- Gary Brazil guided Forest to victory against Arsenal
- Arsenal fans headed back to London red-faced following the defeat
- The manager thinks Forest would beat Arsenal every week
- Arsene Wenger did not look impressed during Arsenal’s FA Cup defeat
Nottingham Forest boss Gary Brazil thinks that his side would beat Arsenal every week.
Arsenal suffered a giant slaying as they lost 4-2 to Forest in the third round of the FA Cup today.
And the Gunners were second-best all throughout the clash, even after the hosts went down to 10 men on the 84th minute.
Arsene Wenger rotated his side for the trip to the midlands but he was unable to prevent his first ever defeat at this stage in the competition.
Arsenal fans headed back to London red-faced following the defeat, and Brazil’s comments will add further embarrassment as he reckons his side should be able to do the same week in, week out.
“This has got to be something we build on,” Nottingham Forest’s caretaker manager Gary Brazil told BT Sport.
“This football club should be playing against the Arsenals of this world, and they should be beating them.
“These fans deserve to be watching Premier League teams and that’s what we’ve got to drive towards.”
Eric Lichaj was one of the stand-out performers for the Championship side as he bagged a brace.
Arsene Wenger had to watch from the stands as Arsenal lost 4-2.
And he explained after the game why he was desperate to score a hat-trick because of a promise made by his wife.
“It was good. My wife told me that if I score a hat-trick at any point this year then I get a dog, so I was trying to get the penalty,” Lichaj told BT Sport.
“Vaughany (David Vaughan) told me politely – I won’t say what he said to me – to go away.”
