Arsenal vs. Hull City: Preview and TV schedule

Mike Hewitt

Hull City will hope to spring another surprise against league leaders Arsenal on Wednesday.

League leaders Arsenal continued their good run of form with a convincing 3-0 win away in Cardiff on the weekend, ensuring a four point advantage at the top of the table. They should be able to maintain their momentum against newly-promoted Hull City on Wednesday, and, with games against Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea coming up, need to.

However, Hull come into the game on the back of an impressive giantkilling, beating Liverpool 3-1 at the KC Stadium over the weekend. The Tigers are now sitting pretty in 10th place, an impressive seven points above the relegation zone. Springing another surprise will be difficult, but isn't entirely out of the question.

For this match, Arsenal will still be without Yaya Sanogo, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Abou Diaby and Ryo Miyaichi, while Hull have Sone Aluko, Paul McShane, Steven Quinn and Curtis Davies unavailable through injury and suspension.
