Denilson comes straight back into the Arsenal starting line-up for today's clash with Hull City at Emirates Stadium.

The Brazilian midfielder missed the trip to Burnley with a back injury but returns to the starting XI in place of the injured Cesc Fabregas.

Arsène Wenger has made two other changes to the side that draw 1-1 at Turf Moor in midweek, brining in Emmanuel Eboue and Eduardo with Bacary Sagna and Theo Walcott dropping to the bench.

With usual captain Fabregas ruled out due to a hamstring injury, goalkeeper Manuel Almunia will lead the team against Phil Brown's side.

Arsenal team in full: Almunia (c), Eboue, Gallas, Vermaelen, Silvestre, Song, Diaby, Denilson, Nasri, Arshavin, Eduardo
Substitutes: Fabianski, Sagna, Ramsey, Wilshere, Walcott, Emmanuel-Thomas, Vela
