With both teams coming in after impressive wins in their weekend fixtures, Arsenal and Hull City will look to extend their streaks in an exciting Premier League match this Wednesday.

The Gunners have been the standard of quality this year in England, and they sit at the top of the standings with 31 points in 13 matches. Hull City, on the other hand, has been one of the revelations of the tournament and they are 10th with 17 points after the same 13 contests.

Arsenal is in dazzling form so far, and their midfield has been the main reason why the team has been so successful. Players like Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil have been simply brilliant, but no one deserves a bigger praise than Aaron Ramsey. The Welsh international had been considered like a player that was never going to live up to his potential, but he has been proving the doubters wrong this season with some stellar displays that make him the key engine of this well-oiled machine so far.

Hull City, on the other hand, doesn’t have many quality players, but they are a solid unit on both ends of the field. They are able to take advantage of their chances on the offensive side of the ball, and they are also very solid defensively. They have been showing that they can compete with top teams, and their 3-1 victory against Liverpool this past weekend can’t be considered a fluke as the team simply outplayed the Reds.

Prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Hull City

Even though Hull City is on a roll, it’s tough to go against Arsenal in this encounter. Their spectacular form and their home advantage will prove to be too much for a visiting side that won’t be able to do as much damage as they did against Liverpool.
