There have been two big questions for Arsenal fans this week as Arsene Wenger and the players prepared for the Premier League home game against Hull City with the need to bounce back quickly and put the disappointment of losing to Watford and Chelsea to one side.
The question of who would start for Arsenal in midfield was one and the other was on the fitness of Hector Bellerin after the Spanish right back was knocked out in a collision with Marcos Alonso last weekend. There is good news for us Gooners on that one, as Bellerin starts to add the pace and attacking impact that Gabriel simply does not possess.
Wenger has also brought Kieran Gibbs in for Monreal, possibly because of his own attacking threat but also because the Spaniard has not been his usual reliable self of late. In central midfield the boss has resisted the temptation to bring in Elneny fresh from the disappointment of losing the AFCON final with Egypt, sticking with Coquelin and Oxlade-Chamberlain instead.
Wenger has also kept faith with the players like Ozil, Walcott and Alexis Sanchez who were heavily criticised for their performance against Chelsea, so they really need to repay the manager and show what they can do and help the Gunners back to winning ways today.
Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs
Walcott, Ozil, Iwobi
Subs: Ospina, Monreal, Gabriel, Elneny, Lucas, Welbeck, Giroud.
Come on you Gunners, give us something to cheer about today.
