Overview

Hull City and Arsenal face each other in a fifth round replay for a place in the FA Cup quarter- finals. It was a fixture that both teams did not want owing to their ongoing battles in the Championship and Premier League respectively. The clash at the Emirates Stadium ended 0-0 despite scoring chances created by both teams during the course of the 90 minutes.

Steve Bruce is battling to return to the Premier League and his team are currently in the third place in the Championship four points behind leaders Burnley and three points behind Middlesbrough in second. The manager has made it clear that the league is his priority and will again name a much changed lineup for the visit of the Gunners.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are also in a similar situation, with Arsene Wenger's team battling for the Premier League title. A bad run of form, however, has seen them drop eight points behind league leaders Leicester City, but Arsene Wenger is insistent that they are still very much in with a chance to win the title.

The Gunners boss is also likely to make a raft of changes to the squad who faced Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday with Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers likely to start. The manager is keen to continue their run in the cup competition as the defending champions aim for a third consecutive FA Cup triumph.

What Managers Say

Steve Bruce [on fixture pileup]: "There's a whole raft of teams playing in the Championship on Tuesday, there's a full fixture list. If we manage to get through then we will have to move next Saturday too, so it just piles up the fixtures – which is a bit of a concern. Thankfully the squad that we have got at the moment, everybody's fit. Some of the squad haven't played since the first game against Arsenal so it will good for them, people like Maloney and Nick Powell in particular. In that respect we will be making changes, yes."

Arsene Wenger: "I must tell you that the pressure from our supporters is relentless and I'm in a good position to tell you that. We have to deal with that. We have to go on a run again. We play on Tuesday night an important game and then we will see if we will play in the FA Cup or the Premier League. We want to win our games."
