Prediction: Arsenal London vs Hull City (FA Cup, 04.01.2015)

Arsenal London are set to defend their FA Cup title against the same team they beat in last year’s final, Hull City. The visitors are out for revenge for the lost Wembley final where they were leading 2-0 and ended up being sent to extra time after Cazorla and Koscielny scored for the Gunners. If one thing is to be expected from a match between the two teams are the goals, as in 8 of their last 9 head to head matches there have been over 2.5 goals. Take the chance while you can and find a betting broker for Bet365.

Hull City will have Huddlestone and Quinn back from suspension against Arsenal, while Harry Maguire and Tom Ince are still under doubt. The players who were ruled out of the clash are: Robertson, Rosenior, Ramirez and Michael Dawson. Last time the two teams met at the Emirates it ended in a 2-2 draw after Danny Welbeck scored a 91 minute goal to give the Gunners a point. Arsenal will make some changes to their squad from the Southampton match players would like to forget about.
David Ospina is set to replace Szczesny in the goal line, while Nacho Monreal is tipped to partner up with Mertesacker in the defense. Rosicky is expected to be the most advanced midfielder in Arsene Wenger’s side if Cazorla will be rested for the Premier League fixtures. Danny Welbeck is still nursing a thigh problem and if he won’t be fit to start expect Sanchez as the main attacking force with Giroud still serving his red card suspension.

On paper Arsenal have enough power to settle this game and the best bookmaker for football give them 1.366 odds to win, Hull City got 9.50 and a draw has 5.25 odds. The Gunners have 1.14 odds to qualify, Hull City, 5.50 and under 11 corners 2.10 odds. Arsenal has scored 14 goals in the last 5 matches, Hull City only four in seven games which is why Bet365 has 2.30 odds for Arsenal to win to nil. We are going to bet 7 units on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals with 2.20 odds.
