Arsenal welcome Hull City to the Emirates in a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final.

Arsenal will be without the suspended Calum Chambers and injured Laurent Koscielny, leaving them short at the back, while Mesut Ozil joins the already long list of sidelined Gunners.

Hull’s Ahmed Elmohamady has fully recovered from a back problem, but the in-form Mohamed Diame faces a late fitness test. Boss Steve Bruce may see this as a good opportunity to take on the injury hit Gunners.

KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
