Duo are set for yet another FA Cup clash

Hull City and Arsenal are set to do battle once again in the FA Cup, making it four ties in the past three competitions.

With the FA Cup replay tonight at the KC Stadium, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look back into the three previous matches the two have played out in the past two seasons.

The prize for tonight’s winner is a home tie against Premier League outfit Watford in the Quarter Final, but if history is anything to go by, it will be Arsenal who advance.

Lets take a look back into the previous encounters

Ramsey final

The long-awaited trophy for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

After waiting almost 10-years for a trophy, the Gunners finally picked up an FA Cup thanks to an Aaron Ramsey extra-time winner against the Tigers.

However, they didn’t do it comfortably.

In fact, Arsenal were 2-0 down inside 10-minutes. James Chester and Curtis Davies had given Steve Bruce‘s men a two-goal cushion before Kieran Gibbs prevented it from being 3-0 by blocking a header off the line.

Santi Cazorla pulled Arsenal back into it with a stunning free-kick, before a second-half Laurent Koscielny goal made it 2-2 with 19-minutes to play.

Into extra-time and in the 109th minute, Ramsey popped up in the box to fire past Allan McGregor.

Game over and a piece of silverware once again for Arsenal.
