Meyler promises to repeat Hull heroics at Arsenal

DAVID MEYLER promises that his Hull City side can repeat last week's heroics against Liverpool when they take on Arsenal in the Premier League tomorrow.

The Ireland man scored his first goal of the season for Hull in their 3-1 win over the Reds on Sunday and Meyler feels there could be a repeat at the Emirates Stadium.

"It's great for the confidence of everyone. Everyone is delighted and is thrilled," said Meyler.

"We have to look forward to Arsenal and concentrate on that. We've got to go there and put on a hell of a show again.

"We need to play in the exact same way if we're going to give them a run for their money.

"We'll have to be even better against the likes of Ozil, Wilshere and Ramsey, who's on absolute fire.

"We've got to go there and stick to a game plan again and work hard. It's a tight-knit squad where we're all the best of pals and we'll look forward to Arsenal."

He added: "Against Liverpool, we wanted to make sure we got the basics right. The manager worked all week with that formation and shape and showed us what he wanted us to do. We've gone out and executed it."

The former Cork City man was on a high after scoring for the first time this season and he owes a debt to manager Steve Bruce, who handed Meyler his debut in England back at Sunderland.

"He showed a lot of faith in me at 19 when he threw me in then so he knows what I'm about and what he'll get from me.

"I work my socks off for 90 minutes and give him everything I have. He knows that and I'm delighted to have had the opportunity. At 1-1, to go and get the goal that made it 2-1 was fantastic."

MICK McCARTHY has yet to make his mind up on a possible deal for former Ireland U19 cap Eoin Wearen.

The Dubliner, who left West Ham last summer, has been training with Ipswich but boss McCarthy is still undecided on Wearen's future.

"I'm weighing it up," said McCarthy. "He's just rehabbing. It's kind of a symbiotic deal actually, because he's getting training with us and playing games, he's done all right."
