The FA Cup

Photos: Wenger speaks to underperforming Arsenal player in training, 21-year-old active

Arsenal will take on Hull City in the FA Cup this evening.

The Arsenal players were training on Monday ahead of Tuesday evening’s FA Cup tie against Hull City.

Arsenal will be looking to win the FA Cup fifth-round replay against Championship side Hull away from home at the KC Stadium this evening.

The Gunners will head into the game against the Tigers on the back of a 2-2 draw with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

The Arsenal players were training hard on Monday, and among those at the session was Alexis Sanchez (see photos above and below).

The Chile international forward is one of the best players at Arsenal, but his form in recent weeks has been less than impressive.

True, the former Barcelona star scored the equaliser against Spurs at the weekend, but it should not detract from the fact that he is underperforming at the moment.

During Monday’s training session, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was caught on camera speaking to Sanchez one-on-one.

Among the Arsenal players training on Monday was 21-year-old goalkeeper Matt Macey (see photos below).

With first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech ruled out for a month with injury and David Ospina playing at the weekend, the youngster could make his debut for the Gunners against Hull this evening.
