Premier League – Arsenal Vs Hull 2-2


Arsenal Vs Hull

A stoppage time Danny Welbeck goal was enough to deny Hull a famous victory away at the Emirates and stop Arsene Wenger for equalling his worst ever start to a Premier League campaign. Alexis Sanchez put the Gunners ahead with a fierce low strike, before Mohamed Diame levelled with a controversial goal, in which he appeared to foul Flamini. Abel Hernandez then put Hull ahead with a well placed header.

Hull were unable to hold out until the end as Sanchez slipped in a clever pass to Welbeck who was able to finish well. Despite dominating throughout the game, without really creating any clear cut chances Arsenal just about did enough to merit the point. It also meant they were able to maintain their current 21-league unbeaten record. They do, however, sit 11 point behind Chelsea and have won just one of their last seven league games. It was a frustrating afternoon for Arsenal who seemed to dominate without any real penetration but also lost Jack Wilshere to another injury.

Hull were able to play their part who took advantage of a makeshift Arsenal defence with Hector Bellerin playing and Nacho Monreal at centre back. Livermore, Huddlestone and Diame were slick in midfield as they passed their way through the Arsenal defence to allow Hernandez to score.
