Tom Huddlestone determined to wreck Arsenal's season

You can take the boy out of Tottenham Hotspur but never the Spurs out of the boy as Hull City tigers midfielder vows to maul the Gunners.

One former Tottenham Hotspur player can ruin what is left of Arsenal's season and is using the motivation of haters-Gunner-hate built up from his White Hart Lane days as motivation for when Hull City challenge the club for the FA Cup in the final, Saturday, May 17.

"It would be nice to stop Arsenal winning anything again," said that player, Tom Huddlestone, as quoted by Sky Sports recently.

Huddlestone left Spurs for Hull last summer and has a one win, one loss and one draw record against Arsene Wenger's side in cup competition, even returning an assist himself in a 2-2 draw in the League Cup.

Arsenal struggled to overcome Wigan Athletic in their semifinal on Saturday ahead of the Tigers' 5-3 taming of Sheffield United to set up the concluding match-up in the competition next month. Despite Arsenal's woes this season and their terrible form of late, they will still be favourites to triumph.

"It'll be difficult, but it's a cup final and it's probably best to be an underdog. We've shown against the big boys in the league that we can match them. Liverpool are flying high at the top of the league and we beat them, so hopefully with Arsenal we can do the same."
