Premier League: Hull City vs Arsenal preview


Arsenal will be looking to extend their two-game winning streak when they visit newly-promoted Hull City on Saturday. The two sides have met last season in the FA Cup and the Gunners triumphed after a 4-0 away win and a goalless draw at home. The Tigers have not beaten Arsenal since 2008, when they pulled off a surprising 2-1 win at the Emirates Stadium. The last time the two sides met in the Premier League at the KCOM stadium was in 2015, when Arsenal won 3-1 with two goals from Alexis Sanchez and one from Aaron Ramsey.

Hull City started the season in great shape, despite the massive amount of problems at the club. They won their first two league matches, including a victory over reigning champions Leicester City, then lost 1-0 against Manchester United before last weekend's 1-1 draw at Burnley. Manager Mike Phelan still has six players injured, but the club have finally made a few new signings, including Ryan Mason. Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson, Moses Odubajo, Alex Bruce, Greg Luer and Brian Lenihan are the players that are still receiving treatment for their injuries.

After the opening day defeat to Liverpool, Arsenal seem to have found the way to bring in the results as they won both their Premier League matches after the goalless draw at Leicester City. Moreover, this week they recorded a good 1-1 Champions League draw at Paris Saint-Germain. It's true that their football hasn't been the best but the results might help them find the right tempo. Per Mertesacker, Gabriel Paulista, Danny Welbeck and Carl Jenkinson are still out injured, while Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey might be fit for Saturday.

Probable line-ups:

Hull: Jakupovic - Elmohamady, Livermore, Davies, Robertson - Mason, Huddlestone, Meyler - Snodgrass, Hernandez, Diomande

Arsenal: Cech - Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal - Cazorla, Xhaka - Perez, Ozil, Sanchez - Giroud

My prediction: Arsenal to win 2-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Hull win - 6.00
Draw - 4.20
Arsenal win - 1.60

    The odds for Hull in this one are quite high and I'm willing to take a shot at it. Not saying home team will certainly win but why not take some risk and gamble for the home side.
    Every streak ends sooner or later and this one was quite long for Arsenal so maybe the time has come...let's see.
