The Gunners predicted first XI for today’s cup 3rd round tie.
Arsenal face Hull City in an FA Cup 3rd round tie on Sunday, a replay of the final in May which the Gunners ran out 3-2 victors, despite going 2-0 down in the first 11 minutes.
Arsenal head into the match on the back of a poor Premier League defeat to Southampton on New Years Day with more questions raised about their ability to handle the big occasion.
Hull meanwhile hav suffered a season as inconsistent, if not more so, than the Gunners and currently sit 15th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone.
Arsene Wenger will be looking for an impressive victory to put a frustrating end to 2014 to bed and kick start his side’s revival in the New Year.
We look at the predicted line-up below:
GK: David Ospina
Szczesny is reportedly set to be dropped against Hull but what isn’t clear is if it’s due to the cup setting of the match or whether it’s his poor and naïve display against Southampton.
RB: Hector Bellerin
Bellerin hasn’t really figured in the starting XI since Debuchy and Koscielny became fit again. He could return against the Tigers if Wenger decides to rest key defenders with some big Premier League ties on the horizon.
