Next up for Arsenal is the trip north to take on Hull City in the Premier League and not only is it a must win ghame for the Gunners, I feel it is vital for us to put these stuttering performances behind us and start to show the sort of dominance that you expect from an Arsenal side packed with talented and world class players like Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Even though they had been relegated from the Premier League and were playing in the Championship last season, Arsenal still ended up playing them home and away. Both were in the FA cup and the reason we had to play them at the KC stadium was that the first match at the Emirates was a frustrating 0-0 draw.
The away match was a comfortable 4-0 win for Arsenal, though, so if Arsene Wenger was looking for some inspiration for this weekend he should look no further back than March of this year. One of the big differences in those two games last season was Olivier Giroud.
The France international forward was left on the bench for the first tie but started the replay and had fired us into a two goal lead and sealed the win before Theo Walcott bagged a late double. I am still not sure why Wenger has not started the big man yet this season but the last two games have been crying out for him to lead the line.
Will this weekend finally see Giroud given his first start of the season? If so will we start to see the real Arsenal instead of this pale shadow that has been on show so far?
