The Arsenal players were training on Saturday ahead of today’s FA Cup third-round tie against Hull City at the Emirates Stadium.

It is a re-run of the final at London’s Wembley Stadium in May, which the Gunners won 3-2 after extra time.

Just like that time, Arsenal will head into today’s match as favourites, but Arsene Wenger’s team cannot get complacent.

The North London outfit will head into the game on the back of a 2-0 away defeat to Southampton in the Premier League and will be determined to avoid an upset today.

The Arsenal players stepped up their preparations for the clash against Hull on Saturday.

Below are the best pictures from Saturday’s training session, including those of Alexis Sanchez, Chuba Akpom and Olivier Giroud, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was nowhere to be seen.
