Arsenal might have picked up two wins in two in their last couple of Premier League matches, but despite those results, Arsene Wenger's men are yet to kick into top gear. The next opportunity for Arsenal to find their mojo comes with an away game against HullCity on Saturday.

The Gunners might have been reasonably comfortable in their win over Watford, at least in terms of the scoreline, their first of the season, but they were a little lucky to take all three points against Southampton last weekend.

With the match looking like it was heading to a draw, Arsenal were given a disputable penalty right at the death, which Santi Cazorla, their player of the season so far, converted coolly.

That was a much-needed win for the Gunners, after their opening day home match nightmare, and while the two-match winning run was stalled with a 1-1 draw against PSG in the UEFA Champions League, Wenger will be confident of a strong show from his team against Hull.

The key to that strong show will be finding their attacking rhythm. Too many times last season, Arsenal looked bereft of ideas on how to unlock teams that sit deep, despite controlling large swathes of the game. That problem still does not seem to have gone away, and that will be a worry for the manager going into the match against Hull, who, like Arsenal, have seven points from four matches, despite a calamitous preseason.

"Overall it's been a positive week," Wenger said. "We have shown the right attitude and spirit, and I know we have room for improvement in certain areas of the game that we will work on. But overall it is positive, the results are positive.

"We take our games seriously, we are focused on doing well and that is what we want to do again on Saturday. We have a short recovery but everyone looks to have recovered well and we go into the game with the desire to win it again."

Team news: Hull City: Dieumerci Mbokani, the new signing, is available, but Michael Dawson, Allan McGregor, Alex Bruce, Moses Odubajo, Greg Luer and Brian Lenihan all remain on the sidelines.

Arsenal: Petr Cech will return to the starting lineup after David Ospina was given an opportunity in the Champions League match against PSG. Theo Walcott, who missed the PSG draw with a minor problem, remains a doubt, along with Olivier Giroud, who is set to take a late fitness test. Defenders Gabriel, Carl Jenkinson and Per Mertesacker, midfielder Aaron Ramsey and forward Danny Welbeck stay on the treatment table.
