What TV channel is Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest on? Live stream and talkSPORT coverage as Gunners get season underway

Arsenal take on Nottingham Forest in their Premier League opener this afternoon as they look to build another title challenge.

The Gunners sat eight points clear at the top of the table after 29 matches last season before just two wins from their next seven handed Manchester City top spot.

Mikel Arteta’s side will have memories of their slip fresh in their minds with all focus this campaign on going one step further and lifting some silverware. 

In the game that saw Man City officially crowned champions, the north London outfit fell to a 1-0 defeat to Forest in May.

That result confirmed Forest’s Premier League survival, who will also be looking to avoid similar relegation worries this time around.

Arsenal won the Community Shield 4-1 on penalties, something that Stuart Pearce believes is a ‘statement’ to the Premier League.

Speaking to talkSPORT after the match, he said: “Yeah I think it does [make a statement] personally.

“They’ve spent a lot of money, they’ve bolstered the squad, they had a really good tilt in the Premier League last year, just fell short through injury and one or two other things.
