Will Arsenal be 3rd big Premier League club mauled by tigers?

It is not quite time for Arsenal to be concerned about the threat posed to us in Premier League games by those clubs fighting for survival, although our next opponents Hull City are currently in the drop zone. That time when all of the bottom clubs are more dangerous than those in mid table is not quite on us yet, but I am still worried about our game this weekend.

The tigers have already mauled two EPL giants in recent weeks and we need to make sure that Arsenal do not join that list, but it will not be easy with Hull on the rise and full of belief and the Gunners in a slump after a couple of defeats ended our dreams of the title.

If Hull carry on the way they are going they will not be involved in that relegation battle, because under their new manager Marco Silva things are really looking up. They may have just failed to get to the EFL cup final at Wembley but they did beat Man United in the second leg to miss out by just a single goal.

They also held Mourinho’s team to a draw in the league and were unlucky not to win it after Markovic crashed a shot off the post late on. They did beat Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool last week and will be fairly confident of taking points off us this weekend as well.

So despite the respective league positions I think this is a big test for Arsenal to avoid being Hull’s third big Premier League scalp in a month.

    I’ve been watching some Hull City’s games ever since Marco Silva took over and I have the upmost respect for that guy. He turned the Tigers from relegation contenders to a very composed side that is highly disciplined on the tactical front. Like really, I lost count the number of times Hull played out of trouble in their defensive areas with complete calmness and some essence of tiki taka.

    Arsenal need to bring their A-game on this one or risk getting mauled by the tigers. This may sound bitter but if Hull pulls a stunner on Arsenal, I will be fully convinced that Marco Silva is a grade A manager.

      with the way Hull city has been playing for the past 5 games and the way Arsenal has been playing as well, i think we will get beaten again or draw the game, i know i will probably get turned down but that is the fact and ya’all don’t love Arsenal more than i do. All we keep saying is if Wenger leaves who is going to replace him? there are one thousand and one managers out there that will replace him,I mean we never knew how good Marco Silva was until he came to Hull and there are other good managers out there that are even better that Silva. Wenger’s ideology of football is outdated and we thank him for his services and commitment these past 20 years but to be really frank i love the man but we NEED a little bit of freshness and new ideas. We need a MANAGER that will make all the lazy ass players like Ozil, walcott,Ramsey, Chamberlain and so on work for what they are been paid for and give there hearts out for the CLUB. The Club and the Manager OWES we fans a lot, we’ve supported the club through the times of TROUBLES, it’s time they start repaying us back with winning trophies. COYG
