Arsene Wenger’s side welcome Steve Bruce’s Hull City to the Emirates today, for the first clash between the two sides since Arsenal came out victorious in the FA Cup final – although I’m sure Arsenal fans will be hoping for less stress today than what happened in the Wembley showcase.
Arsenal fans received a huge boost when it was announced that Aaron Ramsey had recovered quicker than expected from an injury and has in fact made the squad for today’s game against the Tigers. Gooners will be hoping that the welcome return of the Wales international will coincide with a rise up the Premier League table, with the Gunners currently sitting in an underwhelming eighth place behind arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Hull fans will be hoping club-record signing Abel Hernandez continues his fine start to Premier League life and prevent Arsenal making eight wins in a row over the Tigers!
#Arsenal team to play Hull: Szczesny, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Flamini, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Alexis, Welbeck
