Arsenal travel to the KCOM Stadium today to take on a Hull side that have made a very impressive start to the season.

Still without a permanent manager, the Tigers have have won seven points from their opening four games under interim boss Mike Phelan, and have played very well despite having a threadbare squad.

Despite signing six players just before the transfer window closed last month, Phelan seems to have settled on a preferred lineup, and that remains the case today.

Record signing Ryan Mason will have to wait for his first start for the club, as will the likes of Markus Henriksen and Will Keane as Phelan names an unchanged lineup for the fifth game in a row.

For the away side today, though the last performances have not been up to scratch, a late winner against Southampton and highly respectable draw at PSG mean Arsenal come into this game in good form results-wise.

Granit Xhaka continues on the bench for the Gunners today – Arsene Wenger has outlined his plans for the Swiss international for this season, but the manager is persvering with the partnership of Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin today.

Olivier Giroud misses out through injury, though Theo Walcott is fit enough to play having missed the game at the Parc des Princes. As expected, Petr Cech comes back in for David Ospina in goal.
