Alexis Sanchez proves his worth to Arsenal once again 0

Posted on February 12, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal recorded a rather laboured 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Hull on Saturday in the Premier League courtesy of a brace from Alexis Sanchez.

In truth, Arsenal struggled at times during the game but claimed the three points courtesy of the Chilean’s unwillingness to give.

Did not have the best of games

Sanchez did not have his best game for Arsenal. At times he looked like he was trying too hard to make something happen, as there was nothing much coming from the rest of his teammates going forward.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent run of decent form on Saturday afternoon as they visit Hull City’s KCOM Stadium in the Premier League.

The home side has continually defied the odds this season and has suffered just one defeat from their four top-flight encounters so far this season. The Tigers recorded a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Burnley last time out courtesy of a Robert Snodgrass free-kick.

The draw means that Mike Phelan’s team have picked up seven points this season in the top-flight following their promotion from the Championship. They have had mixed fortunes at the KCOM Stadium this season, though, having beaten champions Leicester, only to suffer a late 1-0 defeat against Manchester United.

Arsenal are through the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, after the Gunners defeated Championship Hull City 4-0 at the KC Stadium on Tuesday night. In truth the win has done little to appease the growing band of supporters who want a change of manager.

This time is different

FA Cup replay really not what Arsenal needed 0

Arsenal’s goalless draw against Hull City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday means that the Gunners now have an extra game on their calendar that they could have well done without.

Arsene Wenger rotated his squad and gave opportunities to some of his lesser used players. The side from north London probably would have won but for a brilliant display of goalkeeping from the Tigers Swiss ‘keeper Eldin Jakupovic, and of course some poor finishing.
