The Gunners continue their quest for the final Champions League spot, now in control with Everton’s disappointing defeat last week.

They travel to the KC Stadium to take on Hull City in a preview of the FA Cup Final at 9:05am ET on NBCSN or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

Arsenal will no doubt be prioritizing the league, which Olivier Giroud has confirmed this week, despite the chance to end their goal drought to come later on.

The Londoners will have a big boost for this match, with Mesut Ozil making his much-awaited return from a hamstring injury, into the starting lineup along with the in-form Lukas Podolski. Mathieu Flamini is also back after a suspension, on the bench.

Hull have not quite secured their Premier League status, but are more than an outside shot at the drop.  They sit six points above the drop and would love to get a bead on Arsenal before their cup final.

They have Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long at the attack today, a pair they will not have for the FA Cup final as they are both cup tied.

The Tigers will be looking for their first win over Arsenal at home since 1915, when they won 1-0.

LINEUPS:

Hull City – Harper; Rosenior, Elmohamady, Davies, Chester; Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Boyd; Jelavic, Long.
Bench – Jakupovic, Figueroa, Bruce, Koren, Fryatt, Sagbo, Quinn.

Arsenal – Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil; Podolski, Giroud.
Bench – Fabianski, Jenkinson, Flamini, Kallstrom, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Sanogo.
