The England forward suffered a knee ligament injury in the third round last season, in the 2-0 win over Tottenham on 4 January 2014.

He has since made three substitute appearances this season.

Steve Bruce made 10 changes to his Hull City team who defeated Everton 2-0 at home on New Year's Day. Curtis Davies is the only player to keep his place.

Today's fixture is a repeat of last year's final, which Arsenal won 3-2 at Wembley thanks to Aaron Ramsey's extra-time goal.

Arsenal XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Coquelin, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Campbell, Sanchez.

Hull XI: Harper; McShane, Davies, Maguire, Figueroa; Huddlestone, Quinn, Ince, Brady; Aluko, Sagbo.
