10 Reasons why we will beat Hull CITY+ starting XI

Before I start slaughtering Hull City and how we will stuff them tonight I’d like to wish their fans all the best with keeping the name Hull City. Owners are just custodians of football clubs, without fan’s there wouldn’t be clubs, Owners should bare that in mind.

1.. Chesney’s save in the 2nd half Vs Cardiff was every bit as important as our 2nd and 3rd goals. GREAT points winning save and the sign of a keeper really on top form.

2.. Gibbs and Sagna are both on form, both doing great defensive work as well as knowing when to push forward. Sadly with Sagna having a slight hamstring injury and Gibbs needing protecting we may see Monreal and Jenks step in.

3.. BFG and Kos must be the best centreback pairing right now in England if not Europe.

4.. Ramsey, 2 goals with zero celebrations against his former boyhood club. If that’s not the mark of a true Arsenal man and future captain I don’t know what is.

5.. Jack, Proving a lot of people wrong, myself included, he can play in any position in midfield if needed.

6.. Ozil, even when he looks quiet he’s capable of pulling a few strings and picking out a pass which leads to a goal.

7.. A few cameo appearances so far from returning from injury, Theo, about time he started a game. I’ve never rated him coming off the bench.

8.. Hull city; played 13, won 5, drawn 2, lost 6, scoring only 12 goals and letting in 16. They even managed to lose to tottenh*m 1 nil (guessing that was a last min penalty, but I wont bother checking).

9.. Giroud, even when he doesn’t score he is involved and it’s about time people looked at him as more a number 10 than an out and out striker.

10.. Wenger knows, December is going to be a tricky month and could shape our season so some careful squad rotation is needed.

Chesney, Jenks, BFG, Kos, Monreal, Flamini, Rosicky, Ramsey, Jack, Theo, Giroud.
