Arsenal travel to the KC Stadium today to take on Hull FC, and we can not afford to take our opponents lightly.
The Tigers come into the game having only been beaten by a very late goal by Manchester United, and will be somewhat confident of earning a point from today’s game.
Arsenal also come into the game with the same record of two wins and a draw from four league matches, but we have won our last two in the league, and should be able to push on from there.
We showed great fight in midweek to secure a point in our Champions League tie away at Paris Saint-Germain, and will hopefully build confidence from our display.
We will have to try and take today’s three points without the help of Olivier Giroud, who is out with a toe injury, and Gabriel Paulista is yet to return from his injury also.
Perez looks like he will get to lead the attack for the second weekend running, and hopefully he will be able to get his first Premier League goal in the process. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi both started in midweek, but I expect the pair to lose their spots to Lucas and Theo Walcott. Xhaka and Cech are also expected to return to the starting line-up.
Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
Walcott Ozil Sanchez
I expect a tough match, and teams usually struggle after playing in Europe, but we made enough changes to keep our side fresh, and should have enough to wear down our opponents.
I expect to concede a goal, but I expect us to grind out a 2-1 win away from home today. Hopefully with Perez grabbing at least one of the goals.
What are your predictions?
