Charlie Patino set to be involved in FA Cup vs Nottingham Forrest as Arsenal absentees mount

Charlie Patino is set to be involved in the first team squad for Arsenal’s FA Cup Third Round clash with Nottingham Forrest on Sunday.

The 18-year-old is one of the highest rated youngsters to have come out of the Gunners academy which has produced the likes of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah in recent seasons.

After impressing for Kevin Betsy’s Under-23 side this season he made his senior debut against Sunderland in the Carabao Cup quarter finals, marking it with a goal before going on to be included in the Premier League squad for the Boxing Day clash against Norwich.
