Having won their last two matches without conceding a goal, Steve Bruce’s men will feel confident they can deliver some more points on Monday night against the Gunners.
Hull City’s home record in the Premier League: P16 – W5 – D4 – L7
Arsenal’s title dreams are over after Chelsea won the league on Sunday, but Arsene Wenger’s side will still need to maintain their current form as they look to secure an automatic Champions League place.
Arsenal haven’t lost a league game since early February, and run of nine games, and have won their last four on the road. They also have a place in the FA Cup final once again as they look to retain their trophy so there is lots to play for.
Arsenal will be overwhelming favourites to win here seeing as they are undefeated in their last nine meetings with Hull, winning eight of those.
The Tigers drew 2-2 in the reverse fixture back in October but lost at the Emirates in the FA Cup in January.
Arsenal’s away record in the Premier League: P17 – W9 – D3 – L5
Hull come into the game off the back of a 1-0 win against Liverpool last Tuesday and will be hoping to seal all three points in this one too.
Hull City: Andrew Robertson and Robert Snodgrass are both out. There will be late fitness tests for Mohamed Diame, Nikica Jelavic and Curtis Davies. But Steve Bruce looks set to name the same team for a third straight week.
Arsenal: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out. Mathieu Debuchy, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are all doubts. Danny Welbeck and Gabriel could come into the side.
Hull’s last five: L/L/L/W/W
Arsenal’s last five: W/W/W/W/D
Key Stat: The last time Hull beat Arsenal at home was April 1915. Can they end a 100 year wait on Monday?

Hull City 0-3 Arsenal – The Gunners to prove too strong for Hull as they pick up another win to move five points clear of United in fourth. Hull need points but this one will be too much of a challenge and they’ll be looking to next weekend’s meeting with Burnley for points.
