Preview: Arsenal vs. Hull City

Sports Mole looks ahead to Wednesday's Premier League clash between Arsenal and Hull City at the Emirates Stadium.

With just over a third of the season completed, Arsenal go into Wednesday evening's home clash with Hull City four points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

They are the strong favourites with the bookmakers to strengthen their grip on the summit, with the majority offering odds of 12/1 on a victory for Steve Bruce's visitors.

Manager Arsene Wenger could make changes to his starting lineup in a bid to keep his players fresh as the campaign enters the busy Christmas period.

That may well see Theo Walcott included following a spell on the bench after he recovered from an abductor injury, while Tomas Rosicky could also be selected.

That would potentially see Jack Wilshere drop out, with Wenger having previously admitted that he needs to carefully manage the number of games that the England international plays.

Meanwhile, Hull will be without injury absentees Paul McShane and Sone Aluko, but Liam Rosenior could be reinstated.

The Tigers have won just one of their six previous trips to the North Londoners.
