1) Arsenal have scored at least one goal in 88% of their away games this season – the only times they have failed to score on the road were in 2-0 defeats against Chelsea and Southampton.
2) The Gunners are in excellent form at the moment, having won eight of their last nine and averaging two goals per game in the process. This fine form is largely due to the prowess of Olivier Giroud, who has scored seven times in that period, and is 7/2 to build on his 14 goals this season by opening the scoring on Monday.
3) However, their hosts also find themselves coming into form at a crucial time – Hull’s victories over Crystal Palace and Liverpool in their last two games are only the second time all season they have won back to back games.
4) The Tigers do still need improvement up front though – they have averaged less than a goal per game this season, and face an Arsenal side with the third best defensive record in the League. Back Hull to fail to score for the 15th time this season at 6/5.
5) The Gunners’ 0-0 draw with Chelsea was the first time they have failed to score since New Year’s Day, when they lost 2-0 to Southampton.
6) Steve Bruce’s men have conceded 58% of their goals in the second half, whilst the North Londoners ship an even greater proportion of their goals in the final 45 minutes – 62%. It is 21/20 that the second half will have the most goals.
7) Arsenal’s star man Alexis Sanchez tops their scoring charts alongside Giroud with 14 goals – and half of his 14 goals in the league this season have come in the final 30 minutes. The Chilean is 7/2 to be the last Goalscorer on Monday.
8) Just 38% of Hull’s games have seen more than 2.5 goals – the third lowest in the league. Another low scoring affair with under 2.5 goals is priced at 9/10.
