Arsenal host Hull City at the Emirates in a few moments as the Premier League teams enter the crucial December month. It is the start to a tough run of fixtures for the Gunners as they take on Everton, Napoli (A), Manchester City (A), Chelsea, West Ham (A) and Newcastle (A) this month and going by the stats, tonight’s clash against Hull City will be their easiest game in the near future to pick up all three points.
Arsenal stand at the top of the table, 4 points ahead of Chelsea and a win tonight would be more than just three points for the North London outfit.
As far as the team news is concerned, it was earlier confirmed by Arsene Wenger that right-back Bacary Sagna will be out of the clash as well as a couple of squad rotations might also be involved. So here are the confirmed line-ups for both the teams.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Ozil, Bendtner
Subs: Fabianski, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Walcott, Giroud
Hull City: McGregor, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Chester, Bruce, Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore, Brady, Graham, Sagbo
Subs: Harper, Faye, Rosenior, Boyd, Koren, Gedo, Fryatt
