Mesut Ozil returns to the Arsenal starting XI for their Premier League trip to Hull on Sunday.

Ozil has not played for Arsene Wenger's side since March 11, when he went off in the 1-1 Champions League draw with Bayern Munich with a hamstring injury.

Ozil is one of three changes made by Wenger from the victory at West Ham last week - Nacho Monreal returns after recovering from a dead leg and Aaron Ramsey replaces Kim Kallstrom in midfield.

Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud are maintained up front as Arsenal attempt to keep up their assault for a top four finish.

For the home side, Steve Bruce has made two changes for his side's FA Cup final rehearsal. Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic return to the starting line-up after they were ineligible to play against Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last weekend.

Hull: Harper, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Davies, Chester, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Boyd, Jelavic, Long

Subs: Jakupovic, Figueroa, Bruce, Koren, Fryatt, Sagbo, Quinn

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud

Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Flamini, Kallstrom, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Sanogo
