Championship side Nottingham Forest pulled off the shock of the day in the FA Cup third round, knocking out 14-time winners Arsenal with a 1-0 victory.

Liverpool and Tottenham both had to come from behind to spare their blushes against League One opposition — but the same could not be said for the Gunners.

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Arsenal

Nottingham Forest defeated Arsenal in the FA Cup third round for the second time in four years, seeing off Mikel Arteta's side at the City Ground.

It was a disappointing opening half in the East Midlands, with chances few and far between for both sides.

Forest almost went ahead midway through the second half via Philip Zinckernagel but the Dane was denied by Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno.

Steve Cooper's side got the breakthrough when Lewis Grabban tapped home Ryan Yates' cross to dump out the 2020 winners.

Kaide Gordon became Liverpool's youngest ever FA Cup goalscorer as the Reds came from behind to defeat Shrewsbury 4-1 at Anfield.

The League One outfit took the lead in the 27th minute through Daniel Udoh. But Gordon soon brought Jurgen Klopp's men level.

Fabinho then dispatched from the penalty spot after Ethan Ebanks-Landell was deemed to have handled in the area.

A backheel from substitute Roberto Firmino and another Fabinho strike in stoppage time ensured Liverpool's progress to the fourth round.

Tottenham 3-1 Morecambe

Tottenham also had to come from behind against League One opponents — eventually rising to see off Morecambe 3-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Shrimps went ahead in the 33rd minute when defender Anthony O'Connor fired a volley in from 10 yards.

But their hopes of an upset soon came to an end.

Goals from Harry Winks, as well as substitutes Lucas Moura and Harry Kane, gave Antonio Conte's side the victory.

West Ham will face National League North side Kidderminster in the fourth round after seeing off Leeds 2-0 at home.

Manuel Lanzini continued his rich vein of form by scoring the opening goal from close range, which prompted a lengthy VAR check in East London.

The visitors had chances of their own in the second half but neither Jack Harrison nor Daniel James were able to convert promising opportunities.

Jarrod Bowen wrapped up the game late on for David Moyes' side, sealing the win with a cute finish after a swift counter-attack.

Wolves 3-0 Sheffield United

Daniel Podence inspired Wolves to a 3-0 win over Sheffield United in Bruno Lage's first FA Cup tie as a manager. 

The winger scored twice as the Midlanders made light work of the Championship Blades. 

Podence opened the scoring before Nelson Semedo doubled the hosts' lead.

The Portuguese international capped off a superb display by adding a third late on after substitute Raul Jimenez dispossessed Blades goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

Milot Rashica struck to halt Norwich's dismal run of form as the Canaries defeated League One Charlton 1-0 at The Valley.

The home side dominated for long periods of the tie but were unable to turn their possession into clear-cut opportunities.

11 minutes from the end, Rashica tapped home Teemu Pukki's driven cross to ensure Dean Smith's side's progressed. 

There was a heart-in-mouth moment for the travelling Norwich fans in stoppage-time when Ben Purrington's header crashed against the bar but the Canaries' clean sheet remained intact.
