Following Hull City’s impressive 1-0 home win against Liverpool on Tuesday night, manager Steve Bruce is targeting Arsenal in their next Premier League, and believes the Tigers can earn another result against a top side in the division in their fight for survival, reports Sky Sports.
Hull City defender Michael Dawson scored the only goal of the game to earn City three points at the KC Stadium, and to finish the day one step closer to safety. Steve Bruce’s men have spent the majority of the campaign in the lower reaches of the table, and they looked down and out earlier this month when considering the teams they still had to play.
But back-to-back Premier League victories against Crystal Palace and Liverpool sees them four points ahead of the drop zone with four games to go. But they cannot rest on their laurels, as two of the sides below them in the table have a game in hand, and could narrow the gap should they win on the weekend.
As a result, Bruce knows his side need a result in their next game against Arsenal, and will set up his side to take all three points, like he did against Liverpool. He was quoted as saying: “We’ve still got four games to play and I don’t think 34 points is enough, history tells us that. We’ve got to produce another few performances and another couple of good results.”
“It’s difficult against Arsenal but we went to the Emirates and got a result down there so if we are capable of doing that then we’ve got a chance at our place.”
