SILVA HAS “HAPPY MEMORIES” AT ARSENAL
Marco Silva reflected on his happy memories of facing Arsenal ahead of Hull City’s trip to Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Hull are on a high after drawing away to Manchester United and defeating Liverpool in their last two Premier League matches, moving to within a point of safety.
The Gunners, meanwhile, have lost two consecutive matches and are under pressure to revive their fortunes ahead of their Champions League last-16 match against Bayern Munich.
Hull boss Silva managed Olympiacos to a 3-2 Champions League victory on his last visit to the Emirates in September 2015 and is now hoping his current crop of players can maintain their recent momentum.
“Of course I have good memories of Arsenal,” said the Portuguese.
“My last result there was a great experience and it is a fantastic stadium, but Saturday is a different moment.
“I want more from my team after our last two results. Two clean sheets in a row is really important for us. We have the quality to give more and play better.
