Mbokani in Tigers squad

Mbokani in Tigers squad

Hull striker Dieumerci Mbokani has been named in the squad to face Arsenal for the first time since joining on deadline day.

Mbokani agreed a loan move to the Tigers from Dynamo Kiev and caretaker boss Mike Phelan has included him in the squad for the home clash with Arsenal.

Fellow new arrivals Ryan Mason, Will Keane, David Marshall, Markus Henriksen and James Weir are all pushing to make their home debuts.

Michael Dawson remains absent with a knee ligament issue and is unlikely to feature until mid-October, while goalkeeper Allan McGregor and defenders Moses Odubajo and Alex Bruce are still a long way off returning to action.
