The Premier League leaders enjoyed a 3-0 win at Cardiff City on Saturday after midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored twice against his former club.
The victory in south Wales kept Arsenal four points clear at the top of the table and firmly in the mix for a first title since 2004 and the club's first major trophy in eight years.
Arsene Wenger's side has won five league games in a row and has conceded just one in their last six games in all competitions.
Hull, who was promoted last season behind Cardiff, is facing Arsenal after an impressive win over Liverpool on Sunday.
The win took the club to the top half of the table on the club's solid record at the KC Stadium. Still the same cannot be said about their away form after having lost five of their six games, including defeats by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Still Hull could exploit Arsenal's back line, given that full-back Bacary Sagna will miss the match due to injury. Sagna has a hamstring injury so Carl Jenkinson is expected to start.
Striker Lukas Podolksi is expected back in training this week after recovering from a hamstring injury of his own. Midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby remain sidelined with knee injuries.
Meanwhile, Hull defender James Chester is set for his first appearance since September.
Chester has been out with a hamstring problem for over two months but has trained for the past two weeks and could replace suspended Curtis Davies.
Hull Striker Matty Fryatt is also set to return to the squad having been called back to the club following a loan spell at Sheffield.
Kick off for the match is at 2:45 ET and can be watched online here.
