Arsene Wenger praises the strength of Hull City's squad, saying that manager Steve Bruce has a "top quality" array of options available to him.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned his players that they will come up against a "tough opponent" in Hull City this weekend.

The clash at the Emirates Stadium is a repeat of last season's FA Cup final, which saw the Gunners end their nine-year wait for silverware courtesy of a dramatic 3-2 victory.

Hull have strengthened their squad over the summer transfer window, and Wenger says that Arsenal must beware of the Tigers' "top quality" squad.

"The Hull game for us is a remembrance of a big sweat, because we played against them in the cup final in a very difficult game," the Daily Star quotes the Frenchman as saying.

"They have bought some very good players, and when you look at their team sheet now, it looks a team that can beat anybody. I expect a tough opponent. Look at the quality of the players they got in. You can say they got top quality."

Arsenal are currently eighth in the Premier League table, while Hull are in 11th place.
