Arsenal vs Hull City  - Competition: English FA Cup 

Arsene Wenger is expected to rest his big-name players with one eye on the huge UCL clash with FC Barcelona in midweek. The Frenchman confident on the fitness of Laurent Koscielny while Gabriel remains unavailable. Mohamed Elneny will probably start after making his debut against Burnley in round four. David Ospina, Flamini and Calum Chambers are all in line to feature, while Danny Welbeck and Joel Campbell could also start.
Hull City team are in brilliant form as they have won five of their last seven games, losing just once. Anyway, they suffered a blip in their quest to return to the Premier League with a 0-0 draw with Brighton on Tuesday night. With 15 games of the Championship season to go, Hull are top of the pile and two points clear of Middlesbrough, who do have a game in hand on Bruce's side.
Man United loanee Nick Powell will definitely be making his debut while Michael Dawson, Abel Hernandez and Jake Livermore are likely to be rested with Tuesday's tough away trip to Ipswich Town. Ahmed Elmohamady could have to settle for a place on the bench once again. In attack, Steve Bruce must decide whether to play his top scorer Abel Hernandez or continue with Adama Diomande.
In 2014 the Gunners beat the Tigers in the final at Wembley before while they knocked out Steve Bruce's side last year, with a 2-0 success on home soil in the third round on their way to win the FA Cup. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with Hull, winning nine, since the Tigers won 2-1 at the Emirates in September 2008.
