I think that Arsenal being drawn to play at home in the next round of the FA cup could be even more of a boost to our hopes of getting that record three trophy wins in a row than the identity of the club we will face, Hull City. And the fact that we are going to play the same team that we beat in the Wembley final of 2014 just seems to suggest that the Gunners are destined to make history in the oldest competition in football.
Just like Burnley, the team that the Gunners beat in the 4th round this weekend, Hull are well embroiled in the race for promotion to the Premier League from the Championship. More good news for Arsenal is the fact that the Tigers also have a midweek game before they come to the Emirates for the 5th round of the FA cup and it is a massive game as well, against another team in the mix for promotion in Brighton.
Arsene Wenger does have the small matter of a Champions League game against the mighty Barcelona the following Tuesday to consider and the TV companies could give the Frenchman a real selection problem by making us play on the Sunday. But the way we played this weekend with an almost completely changed team should mean that we can cope and get one step close to another FA cup win.
