Just as Arsenal fans were led to believe, our FA cup opponents today in the 5th round have kept their focus on getting out of the Championship and into the Premier League, as Hull City manager Steve Bruce makes 10 changes to his starting line up, so hopefully the fact that Arsene Wenger has made nine from the Arsenal side that beat Leicester should not be damaging.
The only two starters from last Sunday to keep their places are the centre back pairing of Mertesacker and Koscielny and with Gabriel still out of action due to injury and with Calum Chambers replacing Bellerin at right back the boss did not have a lot of choice.
Chambers, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs
Campbell, Iwobi, Walcott
Subs: Macey, Bellerin, Monreal, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chamberlin, Sanchez, Giroud
The Arsenal side still looks like a strong one to me, especially up front where Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott will be feeling good after both scored against the Foxes and will be keen to build on that and force their way into the first team on a regular basis, not to mention the thoughts of the England manager Roy Hodgson ahead of Euro 2016.
Will the Arsenal second string be too much for the Hull reserves?
