The Gunners are aiming to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League as Hull City roll into the Emirates on Wednesday (watch live online via NBC Sports Live Extra) to try and cause an upset.
Arsenal have been in fine form, with four wins from their last five league games and they’ve only conceded once in that stretch. On Saturday against Cardiff City Aaron Ramsey was once again the hero as the young Welshman continues to take the PL by storm.
By Hull are prone to an upset and are coming off the back of a hugely impressive 3-1 win against Liverpool at the KC Stadium on Sunday. Steve Bruce’s side have surprised everyone this season as they keep grinding out big wins at home and looking solid as a rock but they’ve won just one of their last 30 PL games away from home.
Now let’s get to the team news and there are some big surprises from Arsene Wenger who has decided to start with Nicklas Bendtner up front to give Olivier Giroud a rest.
As for the Tigers, Bruce has handed James Chester a start as captain Curtis Davies is suspended.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Ozil, Bendtner
Hull City: McGregor, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Chester, Bruce, Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore, Brady, Graham, Sagbo
