Arsenal emerged comfortable winners, in the end, thanks to goals from Xhaka, Walcott and a Sanchez brace. Hull began the better side, and played with freedom but Arsenal's opener seemed to dent their confidence. A Jake Livermore red card minutes later did not aide their cause one bit and although Sanchez did fluff the resulting penalty, a Walcott goal 10 minutes after the half time break gave Arsenal a 2 goal cushion. Mbokani came on and had an instant impact winning a penalty for his side which Snodgrass converted. Alexis, however, stifled the fightback with Arsenal's third before Granit Xhaka's monstrous strike sealed the 3 points for the Gunners.
The win takes Arsenal into 2nd place in the table while Hull slip down to 10th.

...

...

Substitution for Hull.

Half time at KCOM. Arsenal lead 1-0 but could easily have had 5. Sanchez missed a penalty after Livermore was sent off and Jakupovic has made several other fantastic saves . Will Arsenal rue their missed chances? Stay tuned for the second half


...

43' Another save by Jakupovic!!

Corner whipped in by Cazorla. Flicked on by Koscielny and Jakupovic gets down quickly to make a save at the near post
