Come Saturday afternoon against Hull, Arsene Wenger will have managed 100 FA Cup ties.
Among the 99 clashes he’s been in charge of so far, the boss has won six FA Cups – more than any other manager – won 71 games, drawn 15 and lost 13, which is pretty bloomin’ impressive.

On Saturday, Arsenal face Hull City for the third year running and we’ll be hoping for the same result, although ideally it’ll be less nerve-wracking than the final two years ago when we didn’t go 3-2 ahead until extra time.
Loan players, Chuba Akpom and Isaac Hayden, have been told they aren’t allowed to appear for Hull against their main team so it’ll be interesting to see what lineup Steve Bruce puts out, considering how important our loanees have been so far this season.
The clash is likely to be anything but easy, considering Hull have a couple of years of frustration built up against us.
Other matches on Saturday afternoon include Reading v West Brom, Watford v Leeds and Bournemouth v Everton.
