Hull’s caretaker manager, Mike Phelen, seems pretty confident going into the Tigers’ clash with Arsenal on Saturday.

Phelan was named caretaker manager after Steve Bruce resigned at the end of last season and has so far done a pretty good job, beating champions Leicester on the opening day of the season (2-1), winning 2-0 to Swansea, and drawing with Burnley. Although they lost to Manchester United, it’s far from a terrible string of results.

Therefore, you can understand why Hull are feeling as if they can get a result at home to Arsenal.

Speaking in his pre-Arsenal press conference, Phelan assured fans that they would not be disappointed.

Arsenal aren’t exactly dazzling in the Premier League right now and I’d imagine that our fans are feeling a little less secure going into the clash. Wenger still seems to be experimenting with lineups and tactics so hopefully this is the match where everything finally gels together.

Fingers crossed.
