Tom Huddlestone insists that Hull City will relish the chance to stop Arsenal from ending their nine-year trophy drought in the FA Cup final.

The Tigers booked their place in next month’s showpiece against the Gunners after a thrilling 5-3 win over Sheffield United at Wembley on Sunday.

Arsenal secured their progress with a tense penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic in the other semi-final on Saturday.

We’ve shown against the big boys in the league that we can match them

And Huddlestone says that Steve Bruce’s men will be ready to do all they can to prevent Arsene Wenger’s men from lifting the trophy.

“It would be nice to stop Arsenal winning anything again,” said Huddlestone.

“It’ll be difficult, but it’s a cup final and it’s probably best to be an underdog.

“We’ve shown against the big boys in the league that we can match them.

“Liverpool are flying high at the top of the league and we beat them, so hopefully with Arsenal we can do the same.”

Huddlestone went on to praise Tigers boss Steve Bruce for his side’s impressive form this season.

“To be in the FA Cup final and doing fairly well in the league and a few more points away from safety with five games left to play is down to the squad,” he said.

“The manager has been brilliant with the way he has brought players in and utilised the squad.”
