Arsenal vs. Hull City: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and FA Cup Preview

Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 04 Jan 2015

After a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign, Arsenal's attentions now turn to their most realistic chance of silverware in 2015 as they entertain Hull City in the FA Cup.The Gunners have won just nine of their 20Premier Leaguematches this term and will face a battle to make it into their regular Champions League berth.But Arsene Wenger's men are the holders of the famous English cup trophy and defeated Hull for the honour, beating Steve Bruce's team in extra-time at Wembley.Hull have steadily climbed thePremier League form guidein recent weeks having won two of their last three games, and they will want revenge on Arsenal after last season's cup heartbreak.Here is how you can watch the match, including kick-off times, and live stream and TV information:When: Sunday, Jan. 4, at 5:30 p.m.GMT/12:30 p.m. ETWhere: EmiratesStadium, London, England.TV Info: BBC One and HD(UK only) Fox(U.S. only)Live Stream:BBC iPlayer(UK only)Fox Soccer 2Go(U.S. only)Curtis Davies Looking To Stun GunnersThe FA Cup is always the one trophy in English football driven by the romance of the underdog, and last season the tournament nearly lived up to its billing as Hull almost toppled the mighty Arsenal.The Tigers were 2-0 upinside eight minuteswith goals from James Chester and Curtis Davies, but Wenger's side battled back to win the title with an extra-time strike by Aaron Ramsey, removing the wind from their opponent's sails.But Hull now have the chance to avenge that fateful day last May and dump Arsenal out of the competition at the first hurdle for the Premier League big guns.James McMath and Tony Banksof theExpressrecently reported on how the defeat still stings Hull's captain Davies, who almost grabbed the winning strike for his team. The player said:That day was the biggest of my football life. I still have visions of Thomas Vermaelen lifting the trophy and the fact that it could have been me. I was on the pitch, looking up at him.He didn't even play in the game but he got to lift a trophy that I, as captain, wanted to lift so badly and I thought we had done enough to lift it.There were tears after the final. It was a strange range of emotions. Immediately after the game I was disappointed but I put my captain's head on and went round trying to lift the rest of the lads.I told them, "You should be proud of yourself so get your head up." I got everyone clapping the fans. But then, as Vermaelen went up to get the cup, I melted. I turned into a blubbering wreck.Davies has once again been influential for his side this term and has featured in 18 of his team's Premier League matches this season, perSquawka.com.Squawka also highlighted Davies' personal contribution to Hull's defence in recent times, highlighting his aerial dominance for Bruce when the KC Stadium team played Burnley:Arsenal are reeling after a 2-0 defeat away to Southamptonand the bad habit of not winning games will currently be worrying Gunners supporters.Hull are in form and motivated, and they will set their stall out to spoil Arsenal's silky attacking midfield.And if Wenger's attack misfires in the way that it consistently has over the seasonunable to finish opponents offthen Hull have a genuine chance of a shock on Sunday.Davies might have been saddened at losing the chance to lift the FA Cup as skipper last May but a win at the Emirates will go some way to repairing those feelings of despair and torment.Match PreviewArsenal have huge issues in the striker department with three key attackers unavailable for Sunday's visit of Hull.Jack Wilsonof theDaily Starreports Danny Welbeck is still out with a thigh injury, with Olivier Giroud completing his recent three-match suspension for violent conduct.This set of events would normally open the door for Lukas Podolski to grab a rare start, but the striker has left the Gunners for a new start at Inter Milan, as confirmed by Italian journalist Guglielmo Cannavale:This will almost certainly mean that Alexis Sanchez is thrust into the striker's role for the match, as he was against Southampton. It is a position he can play, but he is not as dangerous as when he has the licence to roam and push wide.But Theo Walcott should return to the Arsenal squad after his long lay-off due to injury, per Wilson, giving Wenger an alternative in attack.Wilson also reports Wenger is likely to remove calamitous goalkeeperWojciech Szczesny out of the firing lineresting the stopper and playing his deputy, David Ospina.Tom Huddlestone returns from his recent suspension for the Tigers, per Wilson, and he will help solidify the centre of the park for Hull.The Gunners are the overwhelming favourites to progress despite their recent form but the equilibrium of Arsenal is certainly compromised at present.Wenger is still missing Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshereand with Mikel Arteta and Mesut Ozil also still unavailableArsenal have lost a huge amount of invention.The onus is on the shoulders of Sanchez to provide the goals to slay Hull in quick time or we might see Bruce's side claim a very unlikely victory at Arsenal's expense.
