Red raw: Iwobi has showed encouraging signs in his few senior starts

By Arsenal correspondent Tony Hughes

Arsenal have rung the changes for Tuesday’s FA Cup clash against Hull despite taking most of their senior squad to the KC Stadium.

Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey have dropped down to the bench for the fifth-round replay, while Danny Welbeck and Hector Bellerin have been left at home.

Arsene Wenger has made six changes to the side that drew 2-2 at Tottenham, with Calum Chambers, Mathieu Flamini, Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Joel Campbell in the starting X1.

They replace the suspended Francis Coquelin, Ozil, Sanchez, Ramsey, Welbeck and Bellerin.
