John Barnes is tipping Arsenal to ease to a comfortable 2-0 victory over Hull City on Saturday and book their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup.

The Gunners head into the game looking to build on their dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Leicester City in the Premier League at the weekend.

Arsenal have been pitted against Hull City for the third straight year in the FA Cup as Arsene Wenger’s men look to win the competition for the third time in as many seasons.

And former Liverpool star Barnes is not expecting the Gunners to be tested too much by the Tigers at The Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.

Writing in his blog for Titanbet, Barnes said: “Hull are flying high in the Championship and playing well.

“I think that’s what they’ll be more interested in, with promotion so important, so I expect to see Arsenal go through.”

Arsenal’s win over Leicester moved them to within two points of the top of the Premier League heading into the final 12 games of the season.
