After playing to a draw, Arsenal and Hull City are back to fight it out again. Don’t fret if you don’t have tickets to KC Stadium for the fifth round of the FA Cup. Catch the live stream here as the pitch heats up on March 8th at 2 P.M. EST.
Goal! Hopefully, the Gunners travel well, because Arsenal are aiming to bring home their third consecutive FA Cup. Arsenal knows how to put the ball in the net and have beaten Hull City in their last five trips to challenge the club. The Tigers have never won an FA Cup and will have their hands full against Arsenal.
The Tigers, however, are hard to beat at home, having won their last three FA Cup matches at KC Stadium in Hull City. Are you guys beginning to see how this game is going to be cray? Then there is the lights out keeper, Eldin Jakupovic, guarding goal for Hull. Eldin stopped the rock 11 times during the 0-0 draw when these clubs last met at Emirates. The action kicks off at 2:00 P.M. EST, so you better be ready!
The club bosses, Hull City’s Steve Bruce and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger, discussed with reporters the issues at hand when these two clubs face off. “Thankfully we have got everybody fit,” Steve said of his clubs health, according to the BBC. “Some of the squad haven’t played since the first game against Arsenal so it will be good for them.” If you support the Gunners and want everyone to know it, you better get an official Arsenal jersey here.
Meanwhile, Arsene shared his thoughts on roster issues. “I will have to make changes but I’m not so much concerned about replacing one player with another one,” the Gunners’ manager said. “It’s more that I have to rotate a little bit and keep the right balance in the team.” If you’re pulling for Hull City, let your pride be known with an official Hull City t-shirt!
Alexis Sanchez is the Arsenal baller to keep an eye on during this match-up. He has scored five times in his last five FA Cup starts and will no doubt be lighting up the scoreboard against Hull City. If Hull wants to survive this round, they need to find an answer for the offensive powerhouse that is Alexis.
