Match Preview : Arsenal vs Hull

Arsenal are now in danger of falling out of the top four following their 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last time out. Arsene Wenger’s side are only one point clear of Liverpool and two ahead of Manchester United heading into the final stretch of the season.

Hull’s incredible resurgance under Marco Silva continued at the weekend when they pulled off a fantastic 2-0 win over Liverpool to follow up from the 0-0 draw they managed with Manchester United the game before.

Surely they cannot record three positive results in a row against three of the biggest teams in the league?

Even if the Tigers are not able to come away from their trip to the Emirates with some points, they will not make it easy for an Arsenal side that desperately need a win here to balance the ship. Place your Bet on NaijaBet.com

Arsenal have scored four goals in each of their last two matches against Hull but will do well to enjoy a repeat scoreline here.
