ARSENAL (4-2-3-1)

Hull City boosted their chance of staying in the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace last Saturday followed, on Tuesday, by an impressive 1-0 victory over Liverpool, to record their first back-to-back clean sheets since October 2013 and move into 15th place. David Meyler missed that game through suspension, but is available to return.

If Hull win this game not only will it go some way to confirming their place in next season's Premier League - and it will be the first time since September and October 2008 that they have won three straight games in the top flight.

Arsenal, meanwhile, dropped to third on Sunday when they ended their run of nine straight wins in all competitions with a 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea but the Gunners are bidding for their fifth straight away victory in the league after winning at Crystal Palace, QPR, Newcastle and Burnley.
