Arsenal host Hull City at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon (3pm kick-off) hoping to get back to winning ways after a tricky few weeks in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s side went down 2-1 at home to Watford 11 days ago before succumbing to leaders Chelsea last weekend, two results which have all but ended their title challenge this season.

However, they will now turn their attentions to securing a 21st consecutive top four finish in the league, starting with a home clash against relegation-threatened Hull this afternoon.

Yet, the Tigers have been re-energised under new boss Marco Silva in 2017, with the Portuguese having won two of his four Premier League matches, as well as giving Chelsea a tough game at Stamford Bridge a few weeks ago.

Nonetheless, Wenger’s men will be confident of getting back to winning ways this afternoon and, being the early game, could put a fair bit of pressure on the sides around them with victory.

Thus, here are THREE reasons why Arsenal will pick up the three points this afternoon…
