Arsene Wenger - Arsenal vs Hull City, Premier League - live updates

Marco Silva, who won at Arsenal with Olympiakos:

“Of course I have a good memories of Arsenal.

“My last result there was a great experience, but Saturday is a different moment.

“I want more from my team after our last two results. We have the quality to give more and play better.

“We have had a good week of preparation ahead of Arsenal. We need to continue to do our work.”

What are the odds?

  • Arsenal 3/10
  • Hull 10/1
  • Draw 5/1

Arsenal’s players should be fully motivated to put things right after their loss at Chelsea. However, as evidenced by games against West Brom, Preston, Swansea, Burnley and Watford they have a habit of making slow starts against opposition they should put to the sword more readily.

Wenger’s conception:                                                                                                                                                      Wenger’s conception of football relies on players having the confidence to play freely and make quick, instinctive decisions in the final third. When Arsenal are low on confidence they slow down and become much easier to play against. Silva has been hugely impressive at Hull so far, with defender Harry Maguire a standout performer, and we expect them to push the home side.

However, Arsenal’s simply must to find a way to win and with two of Welbeck, Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez likely to be on the bench, they have the attacking resources to get themselves over the line.
