Man United loanee James Garner produced a man-of-the-match performance that saw the Gunners getting knocked out of the Fa Cup.
Garner, 20, who has been in United’s academy since 2016, and at the age of 17 made his first Premier League debut in February 2019.
The under 21 England international who is currently in his second loan spell at Nottingham Forest has made 21 appearances for and registered one goal in the Championship this season.
Every Man United fan has been varied that the center of the pitch problems and needed addressing. Back to the start of the season, there was a slight belief that James Garner would get a sniff in the first-team at Carrington but due to the overload of senior players at Old Trafford, the youngster had no option but to find some game time elsewhere.
Nottingham Forest recalled the player as the Tricky Trees was desperate for the midfielder to help the team.
However, against Arsenal, the 20-year-old came close to taking the lead for his side after his top corner free-kick was palmed away from Bernd Leno into a full-length save.
The former United academy graduate was very impressive in his passing and switching up the play.
Forest broke the deadlock in the 82nd minute thanks to Lewis Grabban’s opener which saw his team progress for the 4 round of the Fa Cup.

Steve Cooper and his teammates were seemingly proud of the display which was put off by the loanee and it is something that must make the youngster proud of himself and something that manager Ralf Rangnick might consider to bring him back at Carrington.
