Recent respective form guides

Hull City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Tigers have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Arsenal's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Gunners have hit 5 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hull City's 27 points from 21 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position. Arsenal find themselves in a respectable 5th position, courtesy of the 38 points they have accumulated from 21 games.
