Hull City face a tough trip to the Emirates on Wednesday, after claiming their first ever win against Liverpool at the weekend.
This encounter will most likely provide us with lots of goals with Arsenal continuing to be spurred on by the main man, Aaron Ramsey, and Hull, still fresh with the reminder of their 3-1 win at the weekend will not lie down and let Arsenal walk all over them.
Arsene Wenger has hinted that there will be a rotation throughout the squad, with Bacary Sagna being unavailable due to an injury picked up against Cardiff.
Kieran Gibbs is also in need of a rest after starting 19 games already this season already. Resting the full-backs will take apart Arsenal's solid defence but Wenger will no doubt hope believe that Nacho Monreal and Carl Jenkinson are ready to step up to the task.
A rest for Jack Wilshere also looks on the cards.
Wilshere, who has shown fighting spirit and a desire to match Aaron Ramsey's outstanding contribution to the side this season, will probably be replaced by either Tomas Rosicky or Mathieu Flamini.
Mesut Ozil also looks set to miss out after Wenger has conceded he too is in need of a rest, this should open up a pathway for Theo Walcott to make his first start since September 18th.
Theo Walcott grabbed an assist in only his third game back from injury, and Arsenal fans will be hoping he can show some of the form he exhibited last season, scoring 21 goals in all competitions. This will, for the time being, address Arsenals problem of needing a striker, Theo can score, and given the chance against hull, it is unlikely he will pass it up.
It looks as though all eyes will be on Aaron Ramsey for this match, with several key members missing, Ramsey needs to go above and beyond his duties as a midfielder to captivate the fans to create a lively atmosphere, and make sure the players don't switch off against an inferior hull city side.
Hull City will not want to be seen as an inferior side, and, boosted by their weekend win against Liverpool, will be looking to upset yet another title contender.
