Manchester United loanee Nick Powell takes on Arsenal in the FA Cup tomorrow, as his loan side Hull face the Gunners for the 3rd year running in the Cup.

Powell is something of an enigma: loaned out over the past 2 seasons, he was brought back this season, only to spend most of his time in the reserves.

Except for those two shock appearances in the first team, against Wolfsburg and Bournemouth, which took everyone by surprise.

Speaking to the press today, Powell showed himself to a bit of a ‘character’, as he admitted he missed United’s game against Midtjylland because….

he was playing FIFA.

Real life modern footballer satire.
