    Jon Moss is the referee for this, who gave that penalty for Zaha against City that was a dive...

    Have to feel Theo is definitely leaving if he misses this; I'd play Welbeck in his position and Lacazette up front, the latter needs a goal for his confidence and this could be the game to get one.

    Get the kids in. I don't want to see Coquelin and Elneny in this game. AMN-WILLOCK double pivot. Nelson in attack.

    With the League Cup games coming up I wonder what type of lineup we're getting for this one.

    You thought that was a dive? Hm. I thought Sterling gave him enough of a push in the back without going for the ball at all. I'd have to see it again.

    If it was a dive, then it's fitting it was against Sterling. Most fitting.

    Dive might be the wrong word since there was contact, I just thought it wasn't enough to cause him to go to ground.

    We can't play Walcott,Iwobi and Welbeck as we need to score. We are down to the bare bones all over especially down the left. I'd like to see some reserve players with first teamers on the bench to help us win if necessary.

    I want a strong team for all of this competition, we're defending this cup and shouldn't risk going out needlessly. Our best shot at a trophy again this year I think, considering our record in it vs European play and some of the teams coming down into the Europa League.

    Hope to see Elneny & Le Coq stamping their class all over midfield. Elneny with a 35 yd piledriver to secure the win and send us galloping into the 4th round.

    Need to play the first team for this, even if it means a weaker team against Chelsea in the League Cup. Kill the game as early as possible and then rest some players.

    Lacazette has to start. He needs goals for his confidence.

    we have won this cup 3 times in the last 4 years ,and we play Chelsea in caraboe cup semi final in midweek so I see us playing a weakened team and hope we play a weakened team. Blaze of glory thinks this is our best chance for silvareware I Disagree .

    Top 4 is pretty much gone IMO so wouldn't mind a strong team and another cup run. But don't think it's gonna happen. Expect some good amount of rotation. Back four/back three would be the tricky bit considering so many injuries.

    bingobob He played for Celtic? Sign him up!

    We shouldn't need a full strength team for this and should seek a balance between this competition and the league cup. Retaining the FA cup would be great actually winning the League Cup for the first time would be brilliant as well.

    I'd love to see us end the month still on for a cup treble.

    Not sure why you'd play a strong team for Nottingham Forest in the 3rd round of the FA Cup and then a weak team in the seml Finals of the Caramel Cup against Chelsea. No logic in that to me. A Europa type team tomorrow with first teamers on the bench will suffice.

    Think people are underestimating Forest. Away to Championship opposition is always hard, we struggled away to Preston last year. A team with Elneny, Coquelin, Walcott, Holding, Iwobi and Chambers will have it difficult I think. Would hate to go out, it`s a special tournament for us.
