Much like the acclaimed game of Donkey Kong, it is on.

It's the FA Cup again today, as Arsenal take on Hull City for the third consecutive season. At least it's in different rounds every time, so that's something? Maybe? Anyway, Hull are chasing promotion and Arsenal are chasing Leicester, and both teams have big midweek games coming up, so expect a lot of rotation from both sides today as both Steve Bruce and Arsene Wenger try to keep their squads as fresh as possible given how busy their respective springs are looking.

If Arsenal win, things get fairly interesting, schedule-wise; the sixth round of the Cup is scheduled for March 12, when Arsenal have a match against West Brom. They have no match during the midweek leading up to the 12th, but there are CL games that week, and it's a no-no to have league matches on UEFA matchdays, so.

But, that's a headache for another day; today's headache is "how to get past Hull City". You've seen the squad update, you know that Isaac Hayden and Chuba Akpom aren't playing, so all that's left now is Arsenal extending its FA Cup dominance over Hull for at least one more season.
