Ahead of a very long trip North where we’ll face Hull, it’s been revealed Aaron Ramsey will still be missing as he recovers from his hamstring injury.
The Welsh wizard picked up his knock against Liverpool, first game of the season, and will still be missing as we head to Hull for a most unusual Saturday 3 pm kick off. It’s thought he may sit out of the League Cup game against Nicklas Bendtner’s Nottingham Forest next week, and a return against Chelsea next weekend could be likely.
Theo Walcott is also a doubt after he missed our 1-1 draw in Paris this week and despite training this morning, he faces a race against time to make the trip to Hull.
Long term absentees remain Per Mertesacker, Carl Jenkinson and Danny Welbeck, Gabriel should be back any day.
If we win the game, Arsenal will be the joint top Hull at home beaters along with Burnley, winning an amazing five times there in all competitions.
There will be a minute’s applause before the game for former Hull player Daniel Wilkinson.
