Arsenal v Hull – Can Steve Bruce’s side cause an upset at 8/1?

With time running out, Nikica Jelavic made it 2-0, as Hull inflicted a first league defeat on new Palace manager Neil Warnock.

Hull recorded a stunning win at the Emirates back in 2008 and another win would see them overtake the Gunners.

Last season Arsenal won all three meetings, twice in the league, including a narrow 2-0 win at home.

The third win was in the FA Cup final, after Arsenal recovered from 2-0 down to win 3-2 after extra time.

Team news
Arsenal’s defence has been ruined by injuries and suspensions, Laurent Koscienly may be rushed back to face Hull.

Hector Bellerin will start from right back, with Mesut Ozil out injured, meaning Santi Cazorla will start behind Danny Welbeck.

Alan McGregor is again out injured, meaning Steve Harper will continue in goal for Hull City.

Hull returned to a 3-5-2 formation against Palace and the same XI could feature, unless Andrew Robertson isn’t fit to start.

Arsenal: Szczesny; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Sanchez, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Welbeck
Hull: Harper; Chester, Dawson, Davies; Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Livermore, Diame, Rosenior; Hernandez, Jelavic
