Arsenal hosted Hull City at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon as the Gunners looked to bounce back after successive defeats.
In a relatively quiet and empty Emirates stadium, arsenal commenced the game with a substantial amount of solicitousness in their game. What didn’t avail the Gunners was that Hull looked relatively comfortable on the ball and perilous going forward, Grosicki and Liverpool loanee, Markovic, the two culprits.
As the moiety wore on, it became even more essential that Arsenal get the first goal to settle themselves and get the crowd abaft them and that’s what they did, albeit in controversial fashion. After a clearance off the Hull line, Sanchez bundled in the ball in what looked homogeneous to a possible handball.
The second-half was quite homogeneous: Arsenal looked scarcely shaky in defence and Hull perpetuated to press forward and threaten. Marco Silva’s men were very impressive with the ball and looked perilous on the contravention-attack, what they didn’t have though, was fortuity. Kieran Gibbs seemed to clatter into Lazar Markovic, which got the advocator a yellow card, albeit he was fortuitous not to be given a red.
Hull perpetuated to press forward but could not break through the Arsenal defence. As the game ticked on, Arsenal determinately killed the game after a Perez header was blocked by Clucas’ hand to which Sanchez scored the subsequent penalty.
