Hull City vs Arsenal
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 17 September, 2016,
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: KC Stadium, Kingston upon Hull.
Hull City will host Arsenal at the KCOM stadium this Saturday in the game week 5 of the English Premier League.
Hull City have started the season well against all odds, they have shown they mean business after the first 4 EPL games. Many must have hoped to see Hull languishing in the relegation zone after the first 4 games, but they have shown they are determined to stay in the EPL. Hull are currently 8 in the Premier League, same points as their weekend visitors Arsenal who in the 7th position. Their late goal last weekend was enough to salvage a valuable point for them on the road in a match tagged as promotion fixture. Steven Defour opened the score for burnley in 72nd minute but Robert Snodgrass stole the show with his 95th minute goal. The Tigers now hope for a win in this fixture as a revenge of 2014 FACup final defeat to Arsenal.
Arsenal did well to take a point home from France in the Champions League as they drew 1-1 with PSG. Gunners fans must be disappointed in the first half of the game, after their team conceded just seconds into the game. Edinson Cavani’s header gave the Parisians the lead in the first minute, and the first half ended that way. However, the Gunners lived up to expectations when Alexis Sanchez’s strike from edge of the box pulled them level. They now hope for a better away performance as they face Hull City this weekend.
