Hull v Arsenal Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

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.

Predicted XI:

Cech
Bellerin  Mustafi  Koscielny  Monreal
Cazorla   Xhaka
Walcott          Ozil          Sanchez
Perez

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.

      Would rather see Iwobi than Theo against Park d bus, but at least Theo tries to defend.

    1-1 purely because wenger will pick wrong line up , Santi at 32 cannot play 3 games in a week especially the role he plays he covers a lot of ground & against psg he got run ragged by younger/stronger midfielders.

    Xhaka and El Neny are a must this game to offer ozil more cover so he can express himself more, I think nacho aswell did a lot of chasing on Tuesday and had a stinker, maybe gibbs coming in to freshen it up a bit wouldn’t be too bad. Like iv said b4 if he can’t produce against Hull he isn’t fit to wear the shirt.

    Agree with a lot Mo1 says. Santi should be on bench with Le Coq and Elneny and Xhaka should start. Not sure about Gibbs though.
    I think OG will start today. Good luck everyone.

      Giroud has a toe injury, probably from kicking the ref’s dressing from door, in Paris? 😂
