Arsenal and Hull will meet for the third successive year when they clash in the fifth round of the FA cup today.
The Gunners, winners in the last two campaigns including the 2014 Final, will be aiming for a third win on the spin, although with a crucial Champions League clash with Barcelona looming large, there will never be a better chance for the Tigers to cause an upset.
Manager Arsene Wenger is likely to hand some of his fringe stars the chance to shine with Danny Welbeck, recently back from injury, set to start and January signing Mohamed Elneny also in contention.
The Gunners have won their last eight FA Cup matches at home and have won nine of their last 10 matches with Hull in all competitions, with just one draw for Steve Bruce’s men in that time.
Despite having the opportunity to cause a surprise, Bruce is also likely to make changes to his side with important Championship matches coming thick and fast.
“Making changes is the only option I’ve got” the former Wigan boss said.
“After Arsenal, we play again on Tuesday and then Friday so I have to make sure we’re fresh enough to compete in those games as well.”
Bruce will hand a debut to recent loan signing Nick Powell. The Manchester United midfielder is set to come in with Isaac Hayden ineligible as part of the loan agreement with Arsenal.
Another Gunner on-loan at the Kingston Communication stadium is Chuba Akpom, scorer of a hat-trick in the last round. The forward is also unable to play against his employers.
Hull have proved resilient at the back in recent times with just two goals conceded in their last eight matches in all competitions and the club have won four of their last five away games in all competitions.
For Arsene Wenger, this could be a monumental season with the side battling for the Premier League title, and with the Champions League still an interest the Gunners will be looking for a straight forward home win with a clean bill of health for the squad.
Hull on the other hand have nothing to lose and with the side full of confidence and perfectly placed in the Championship to mount a serious promotion challenge things a visit to the Emirates Stadium should prove the perfect tonic.
Arsenal to win with a goal handicap, which is available at around 11/10, should pack plenty of punch for punters today.
