Top 5: Players of the FA Cup Fourth Round
31st January 2016

3. Chuba Akpom (Hull City)

The Arsenal loanee scored his first career hat-trick as Hull City romped to a 3-1 victory against League One’s Bury.

Akpom put the Tigers ahead after quarter of an hour as he stroked the ball into an empty net after David Meyler’s shot was parried by Manchester City loanee Ian Lawlor.

Arsenal loanee Akpom has now scored seven goals in all competitions for Hull City this season.

Sone Aluko was then fouled in the area after good work down the right wing, allowing the 20-year-old to calmly stroke home and send Lawlor the wrong way.

He then completed his hat-trick as his menacing run at the Shakers’ defence allowed him to fire home into the opposite corner.

The victory set up a tie away to Arsenal in the fifth-round, the third year in a row that the two sides have faced each other in the FA Cup.
