Arsenal gained revenge along with a better showing since recent weeks to beat Hull City 3-1. It also extended their unbeaten run to eight games and avenged their shock loss to Hull at the Emirates Stadium in September. Hull had looked set to frustrate the Gunners for the second time this season when Daniel Cousin cancelled out Emmanuel Adebayor’s first-half opener after 65 minutes.
But the KC Stadium visitors produced a strong finish and snatched victory with goals in the final nine minutes from Samir Nasri and substitute Nicklas Bendtner. It was the perfect response from the Gunners after wins earlier in the day from Manchester United, Chelsea and Aston Villa. Arsenal stay in the 5th position.
