Arsenal desperately need a result when they host relegation threatened Hull City in Saturday’s early kick-off.
The Gunners title hopes went last weekend when they were beaten by the leaders Chelsea.
Eden Hazard scored the pick of the bunch in a comfortable 3-1 as Chelsea moved a step closer to the title.
Marco Silva has turned Hull City around and they stunned Liverpool 2-0 last weekend to move closer to safety.
Liverpool dominated possession, but their woes continued as Hull recorded a deserved victory.

Hull City – Robert Snodgrass 7 goals
Arsenal eased to a 4-1 win when the pair met earlier in the season, with Granit Xhaka scoring a superb fourth.
The majority of meetings between the pair in recent years has been in the FA Cup, with the Gunners beating Hull in the 2014 final.

Xhaka remains suspended for the hosts, meaning Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will continue in midfield.
Hector Bellerin is a doubt after going off injured in the loss to Chelsea after a blow to the head.
Lazar Markovic is set to return after he was ineligible to face his parent club Liverpool last time out.
Abel Hernandez is a major doubt, meaning Oumar Niasse, who scored last weekend, is likely to start.
