Arsenal’s focus shifts back to the FA Cup as they look to keep their unbeaten run in the competition going. Here’s how they may lineup against Hull City.
One can only imagine that Arsenal are heading into the FA Cup weekend on a high. The Gunners defeated league-leading Leicester City on Sunday by a narrow 2-1 win, but what an important win it was. The win put a valuable 3 points on the table for Arsenal, who cut Leicester’s lead at the Premier League’s summit to just two points, which is far more manageable than an eight point lead Leicester could have had over the Gunners had the result gone their way at the Emirates.
With their Premier League campaign back on track, Arsenal will shift their focus to what is quite possibly their favourite competition, when they take on familiar foes Hull City at home on Saturday. It was nearly two years ago that Arsenal defeated Hull City in the FA Cup final to end their nine year trophy drought. Perhaps that win will be a good omen for the Gunners, who will be looking to continue on the path to a potential three-peat in the FA Cup.
For this game, you can expect a bevy of changes in the Arsenal lineup, as Arsene Wenger will look to give his first team players a rest after their last-gasp win over the league leaders. Here’s how the Gunners are expected to line up against Hull City on Saturday.
