Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic is in contention for a return for Hull when Arsenal visit the KC Stadium on Monday.

Jelavic has returned to training this week after a knee injury, midfielder David Meyler is back from suspension and defender Andy Robertson is also available again after an ankle problem.

Senegal midfielder Mohamed Diame remains a doubt with a sore knee.

Hull manager Steve Bruce says Hull cannot afford to relax even though they are on 34 points - there are also tough matches to come against Tottenham, Burnley and Manchester United.

He added: “I still think we need a couple of results. It’s all still to play for - it’s exciting if you are watching from afar but if you are involved in it you have to come out fighting.

“We have seen how competitive and difficult the league is, but back-to-back victories gives us a fantastic chance when a lot of people a week ago were writing us off.”
