Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said Hull City FC have nothing to lose when they face the Premier League leaders on Wednesday night.
The ‘Tigers’ dealt another Premier League outfit, Liverpool, a heavy blow on Sunday, preventing the Anfield club the chance to trail the ‘Gunners’ after securing a 3-1 win at the KC Stadium.
Wenger, whose side go into the Week 14 encounter in the wake of a 3-0 win at Cardiff, believes his players have to take a leaf from Steve Bruce’s men’s midweek triumph over another title contender when they visit Emirates.
“Hull have done very well and they have nothing to lose when they come to us. We have a warning from the Liverpool game,” said the Frenchman.
Sunday’s victory in Wales helped the North London outfit go seven points clear at the summit of the league standing while Chelsea and Manchester City also recorded victories to keep up the pressure on the leaders as we enter the busy month of December.
Wenger insist the title race is too close to call at the moment with Arsenal sitting at the top on 31 points, but added his players will have to maintain their top form if the club were to stand a chance come May.
“It’s a bit early to make a prediction on the title. Id we can maintain our concentration, we have a chance.
“What is important is to be at our best in the nest game. I don’t see beyond that.
“I feel that all the players have done well. Of course Aaron Ramsey has done exceptionally well.
“Hull are very dynamic going forward and on set-pieces they look strong as well.”
Hull City sits tenth on the Premier League log with 17 points.
