The Gunners have been impressive recently and I believe their good form will continue. Hull lost 5-1 at Everton last week and have been very disappointing recently. Arsenal should get a good win in this one, despite playing without Cesc Fabregas (who is struggling with a hamstring injury).

Liverpool are desperat to bounce back from their defeats to Wigan and Lille. If the Reds does not get three points in this one they could be out of the battle for the important fourth spot in the Premier League. Portsmouth have had some decent results recently, but they should struggle in this one.
