The 23-year-old January signing took to social media after the 0-0 stalemate.

January signing Mohamed Elneny took to Twitter on Saturday night to reflect on Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Hull City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Indeed, the Gunners' dominance yielded no goals and their failure to break the Tigers down has resulted in yet another game being added to their already busy schedule.

Arsenal will now have to travel to the KC Stadium to face Hull in the fifth-round replay and it's a significant inconvenience in their bid to win three FA Cup trophies in a row.

Elneny, meanwhile, feels Arsenal played a good game at the Emirates Stadium but were unfortunate not to progress.

He does insist, however, that the north London side are already looking forward to facing Hull during the replay.

While FA Cup replays are clearly a hindrance for Premier League teams, they are essential to lower-league clubs.

So why don't the FA propose an alternative idea: clubs will have the option to choose whether they want a replay or not before a tie. If it's Chelsea v Manchester City, both teams can elect to play extra-time & penalties instead.

If it's Shrewsbury v Manchester United, the lower-league side can choose to have a replay as it is far more important to them...
