The victory all but confirms Nottingham Forest’s Premier League Status for next season in the 1-0 home victory against the title chasing Arsenal. The Gunners’ skipper, Martin Odegaard made an unusual mistake that allowed Forest to quickly take the lead. Due to the Norwegian’s errant ball, Morgan Gibbs-White was able to gallop through the heart of the Arsenal defence and find Awoniyi to finish. The win also crowned Manchester City as winners of the 2023 Premier League season, rendering their remaining games of the season inconsequential. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest are now 16th in the standings, four points more than 17th placed Everton, who drew away at Wolves earlier in the day.
