Arsenal and Hull may have a history in the FA Cup, but both clubs having bigger goals than advancing to the sixth round. Arsenal are three days away from a Champions League meeting with Barcelona, and will likely adjust their lineup for today’s meeting at Emirates.
Hull City don’t have one important fixture ahead- they have all of them. Steve Bruce’s club are two points clear in the League Championship, and an FA Cup run would be meaningless without promotion. That doesn’t mean you won’t see Abel Hernandez in the lineup, who is third in the Championship with 16 league goals.
For Arsenal, expect Wenger to make changes at both ends of the pitch. He’s already made it clear David Ospina will start in goal, but Danny Welbeck could be in line to start up front. Welbeck scored the winning goal against Leicester City last weekend, and needs more game action if he wants to play a role for England at EURO this summer.
