In a repeat of last season’s final Arsenal take on Hull in the FA Cup third round and just as they were at Wembley in May, it’s the Gunners that look likely to be celebrating at the Emirates Stadium, where they’re William Hill’s 1/3 favourites.
The Tigers, 9/1 outsiders with BetVictor, took the 2014 final to extra-time so there could be a few punters tempted to back them at 9/2 courtesy of Stan James to force a replay, especially as Steve Bruce’s charges earned a share of the spoils when the pair met in North London in October.
This though, will be an entirely different occasion. Arsene Wenger’s men have looked far stronger since that Premier League stalemate while the opposite can be said of Hull and the hosts should subsequently be able to make their home advantage count.
Arsenal to win 2-0 – 6/1 (bet365)
