Hull City vs. Arsenal: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Jamie McDonald

Arsenal will continue their push for a top-four finish away at Hull City on Sunday.

Everton's shock defeat to Crystal Palace in midweek has left Arsenal ahead of the Toffees in the all-important fourth place position in the Premier League table. However, the Gunners' buffer is only a single point, so they can't afford to ease off at all over the final four games of the league season.

They'll be expecting a win away at mid-table Hull City on Sunday, in what is effectively a dress rehearsal for the upcoming FA Cup final. However, it certainly shouldn't be an easy game. The Tigers have punched above their weight throughout the campaign, with their 1-0 win over Swansea City last time out all but ensuring their survival.

For this match, Steve Bruce's side will still be without Robbie Brady, Paul McShane and Allan McGregor, though it's Arsenal who have the greater injury concerns. Abou Diaby, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere are all definitely unavailable, while Serge Gnabry, Mesut Özil, Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs all face late fitness tests.

Out: Robbie Brady (groin), Paul McShane (ankle), Allan McGregor (kidney). In doubt: None.
