A Brian Kidd hat-trick earns Arsenal a 3-1 win over York City in an FA Cup third round replay in front of a bumper gate of 15,362 at Bootham Crescent.
The Gunners will travel to Coventry City in the fourth round. It's a welcome win for Bertie Mee's side who lie in 19th place in the old first division.
In other news, Forest appoint Brian Clough as their new manager.
George Graham says, "We are not in the grip of a crisis and I will not panic," in the aftermath of Arsenal's shock 2-1 FA Cup defeat at fourth division bottom club Wrexham last week.
"This is a new experience for the players," he adds. Not a nice one but, perhaps, an important one.
"It is also a challenge for me personally and one from which you can grow as a person. We pass the Kleenex around every morning, and have a little cry about the Wrexham result, but we are working hard and getting back to basics."
The Gunners "respond" with a limp draw at home to Villa, remaining 17 points off the top of the table.
Arsenal draw 1-1 with Liverpool at Highbury, John Arne Riise equalising for the visitors after Fredrik Ljungberg fired the Gunners into the lead.
"We feel we have lost two points because we had the right attitude and fought hard," says Arsene Wenger.
"When you're 1-0 up you expect to win the game - the fact we got caught on the break is disappointing. In the last two or three months we've lost only one game.
