Watch Hull City Vs. Arsenal FA Cup Replay Live Stream: Gunners Must Break 5-Match Winless Streak To Survive
Arsenal must end a five-match winless streak if they want a chance at a third straight FA Cup trophy, when they take on League Championship club Hull City in an FA Cup replay match which will stream live on Tuesday, after the two teams played to a dispiriting 0-0 draw on February 20.
But even though Arsenal have not won in five matches across all competitions, the Gunners come into the FA Cup replay match on the upswing after a hard-fought 2-2 draw against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a match with strong Premier League implications over the weekend.
“We’ve shown an outstanding performance, attitude and resolute spirit,” Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger said after the draw against Spurs. “Our spirit was questioned, our attitude was questioned and I think we gave the right response, which was not easy. The team needs to take encouragement and reproduce that kind of attitude in every single game.”

On the other hand, a win for Arsenal means that they will have to play seven games in the next 22 days as they not only pursue their hat-trick FA Cup, but struggle to survive against heavily favored Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, as well as hang on to their top four position in the Barclays Premier League — starting with a key fixture on Saturday against Manchester United.
Arsenal also enter the match under a cloud following an “exclusive” report in London’s Evening Standard newspaper on Sunday, claiming that a loss to Hull could, possibly unbelievably, oust Wenger as Arsenal’s manager — the job he has held since 1996, making him the longest-tenured manager in the Premier League.
According to the Evening Standard article, discussions inside the Arsenal braintrust began with regard to sacking Wenger after the team’s 2-1 loss to Swansea City on March 2, and that Wenger’s own former captain, Patrick Viera, is in line to take over the club.
Whether or not there is any credence to the shocking report, there is no doubt that Arsenal needs a win against Hull both to stay alive in the FA Cup, and to maintain the confidence of their supporters.

Hull City currently sit third on the League Championship table, three points off of second-place Middlesbrough, meaning that Hull would face a playoff if they want to make it up to the Premier League next season.
But Hull City Manager Steve Bruce has seen his team hit a dry spell of late as well, going goalless in two straight games, with a 0-0 draw followed by a 1-0 defeat to eighth-place Birmingham City.
“We’ll pick ourselves up from the result at Birmingham and get ready to go again,” said Hull Captain Michael Dawson on Sunday. “There are still plenty of games to be played and plenty of points to play for. There will be ups and downs along the way, as we’ve seen with results elsewhere. We’ve got a big FA Cup game against Arsenal to look forward to now.”
