This weekend Arsenal carry on their journey to win a third successive FA Cup by playing Hull City in the third successive tournament.

The Gunners beat the Tigers in the 2014 FA Cup final before immediately playing them again in the following season`s 3rd round on their way to another FA Cup win. Therefore it wasn`t too surprising to see the pair drawn against each other once more.

Despite getting relegated from the Premier League they mostly managed to keep their team together and for that reason Arsene Wenger still considers them a Premier League outfit.

“They are in a strong position in the Championship, but the level in the Championship has gone up tremendously, we saw it against Burnley, you need a top-level performance to beat these teams.”

“They are very strong because they have been together for a long time. Let`s not forget, if you go through their team they have all played together in the Premier League.”

“They are all Premier League players, even on the bench. I consider them a Premier League team.”
