ARSENAL – HULL CITY
After winning two consecutive times in the Premier League, Arsenal will try to bounce back against Hull City at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners lost two times in a row against Watford and Chelsea, basically surrending from fighting for the title. And if they continue like this, they could miss Champions League qualification as well. Especially when we know how strong is the competition for the Top 4 this season.
Now Arsenal will face a team who caused a major surprise in the last round of the Premier League. Hull City managed to beat Liverpool, which allowed them to move from the last spot in the standings. Now The Tigers will try to continue surprising everyone, this time trying to take something from Arsenal.
Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is once again put under a serious pressure. More and more of Arsenal’s fans want the legendary frenchman to quit the club after the end of the season. And if Arsenal really remain out of the Top 4 after the end of the campaign, maybe their wish will come true.
Arsene Wenger will be without Santi Cazorla against Hull City. The Spaniard is still recovering from his latest injury. Aaron Ramsey is also injured, while a late fitness test will determine if Hector Bellerin could participate in the match.
Hull City will be without the services of Ryan Mason, Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson, Curtis Davies and Alex Bruce, who are all injured and still unavaliable.
This is a must-win game for Arsenal. The Gunners could leave the Top 4 if they lose points against Hull, with Liverpool and Manchester United being very close to the Londoners. And if Arsenal don’t win, the pressure on Arsene Wenger’s shoulders will become enormous. Hull City on the other hand continue to battle against relegation.
