Did you know?

Since beating Arsenal in their first Premier League meeting with them in September 2008, Hull City have lost six of the last seven meetings with the Gunners (D1).

Alexis Sanchez has scored four goals and assisted two more in four previous matches against the Tigers across all competitions.

This is Hull’s best start to a Premier League campaign after four matches. They also had seven points in 2008/09, but had a negative goal difference.

Santi Cazorla’s last seven PL goals have been from the penalty spot (tied with Danny Murphy, Jan Mobly and Mikel Arteta). One more will set a record run.

What the managers say 

Mike Phelan: "It will be a tough game against a top team full of excellent players, but the spotlight will be on Arsenal. We’ll be up for this challenge."
