Both managers have made a number of changes to their starting line-ups from new years day, but Arsenal look much the stronger after Steve Brice made a massive 10 compared to Arsene Wenger’s five. And you would expect our fringe players, like Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Joel Campbell to have too much quality for the visitors Hull City.
The major talking point for Arsenal fans is the first start in a year for our England international star Theo Walcott. The speedy forward will join Campbell and Alexis in a very pacy looking Arsenal attack, with the skills of Cazorla and Rosicky behind them.
Koscielny drops out of the back four though, with young Chambers coming in so Hull will hope that they can put us under real pressure. As long as we don’t give them a nice easy two goal start like we did at Wembley though, I think our second string will still get the Gunners into the next round.
