Read the Gooner Fanzine Player Ratings after a disappointing defeat ahead of a big week with Mikel Arteta's side travelling to Liverpool first leg of their League Cup semi-final at Anfield and Spurs in the North London derby a week on Sunday.
Leno: 6/10: The German understudy to Aaron Ramsdale was alert in making a couple of saves in the second half but could do nothing about Forest's winner
Cédric Soares: 4/10 - An underwhelming display (substituted for Kolasinac N/A on 90+1'minutes
White: 5/10: Looked to play the ball out from defence but not the same player without Gabriel next to him. Arsenal suffered as a result
Holding: 5/10: Solid in the air but lacking when attempting to play the ball out from the back
Tavares: 2/10: Sloppy and off the pace during a miserable performance that lasted 34 minutes (substituted for Tierney 6/10 on 35'minutes)
Sambi Lokonga: 5/10: Not as influential as Arteta required in the heat of battle
Patino: 6/10 - Well played Charlie Patino. gave his all during a challenging match and will be so much better for the experience. Completely and utterly earned his hug from boss Mikel Arteta after he was replaced by Lacazette 5/10.
Saka: 5/10: Not as effective as he has been as the Gunners suffered an off day here at the City Ground
Ødegaard: 5/10: A cultured presence but the malestrom around him did not suit his game
Martinelli: 5/10: Lively without threatening
Nketiah: 4/10: An extrememly disappointing performance
