Arsenal defeated Hull City 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday night in a Third Round FA Cup encounter. The home side were looking for a great start as they are the defending champions, and the visitors were looking to cause an upset. The match started at a high pace. In the early part of the match Alexis Sanchez and Joel Campbell were giving the visitors some headaches. Campbell’s shot was saved in the 5th minute after a great link up with Sanchez as they were showing more intent than the visitors. After the 10th minute, the teams were still 0-0 and that man Sanchez threatened again in the 13th but missed the chance as the ball went over the bar. In the 20th minute finally the home side found a breakthrough as their captain Per Mertesacker handed them a 1-0 lead as they continued to dominate. Hull were sitting back as the home side were bossing the match looking for the sec ...
AT EMIRATES STADIUM ARSENAL 2 Hull City 0 ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger has played down fears over Alexis Sanchez suffering burnout after the Chile hitman inspired the FA Cup holders to a third-round victory against Hull City yesterday in a re-run of last season’s final. Talismanic forward Sanchez confirmed Arsenal’s presence in tonight’s fourth-round draw with a late clincher after German World Cup winner Per Mertesacker opened the scoring with a first-half header. Wenger also confirmed Lukas Podolski’s departure from north London while insisting his preferred destination for French striker Yaya Sanogo, who has been made available for loan, is England’s top flight. “At the moment, in our fatigue tests he (Sanchez) doesn’t seem to have any problems,” said Wenger. “I feel when the players are confident it is important to keep them going especially when they have physical potential to recover quickly. I was tempted to rest him but in the end he always feels ready.” Arsenal breached the visi ...

Hey Per, Good morning na ja😂 and congrats with a good moment that happened this match 2-0.💪✌️
FA Cup: Arsenal 2-0 Hull highlights Arsenal began their defence of the FA Cup with a hard-fought win as Hull City failed to gain a measure of revenge for defeat in last year's final. Per Mertesacker rose above the Hull defence to powerfully head in the opener from Alexis Sanchez's corner. Arsenal controlled the first half and almost doubled their lead when Hull's Paul McShane cleared off the line. Hull grew in confidence after half-time but Sanchez's sharp turn and calm finish inside 18 yards sealed victory. The Chile forward has become Arsenal's talisman since his £35m summer move from Barcelona and another moment of quality eased any lingering fears of Hull snatching a late draw at the Emirates. In truth, the Tigers rarely looked capable of avenging their dramatic 3-2 defeat at Wembley last May and this third-round tie failed to match the fever and tension of last season's showpiece. Arsenal controlled 65% of the possession in the first half, but failed to transform their dominance into a comfortable l ...

Arsenal fans, If you read a Breaking_News like: Arsenal Football Club can confirm that Arsene Wenger has decided to resign in this January 2015, while Nacho Monreal, Per Mertesacker, Mathieu Flamini and Abou Diaby all decided to leave Arsenal this January 2015. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL if this come to reality? :D
For a change, the win was not about Arsenal’s precision in attack but their determination and courage at the back, helped by Laurent Koscielny, back for only his second appearance during nearly three months of problems with his Achilles tendons. Koscielny is always a solid presence, but others stepped up too in this department. Per Mertesacker produced one terrific clearance, heading behind for a corner as Andy Carroll loomed over him, and Francis Coquelin, making his first Premier League start in nearly two years, added bite in midfield. In fact, Allardyce can be flattered by the team Wenger selected because the Arsenal boss rarely tinkers on account of the opposition. Coquelin was brought in alongside Mathieu Flamini to fight for the knock-downs won by Carroll in the air. Arsenal finished the game with the only six senior defenders in the first-team squad all on the pitch. 'We need to be stable defensively,' said Wenger. 'We’ve missed important players at the back. 'I felt Coquelin played well. He t ...

LATEST SPORTS UPDATE FROM AROUND THE WORLD. Arsenal could go into this weekend's Saturday Night Football game against Newcastle with just one centre-back available. Laurent Koscielny's ongoing Achilles problems mean he is unlikely to be fit, according to Arsene Wenger, and stand-in Nacho Monreal is still out with a foot injury. And with Calum Chambers suspended, Per Mertesacker is set to form a fourth new defensive pairing against Alan Pardew's in-form visitors, who made it seven wins from nine games when they ended Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season last weekend. Wenger said: "Our main problems are still defensively because Koscielny looks like he will not be quite ready, Monreal is not back and Chambers is suspended." Wenger will have to be creative: Mathieu Debuchy could be asked to move inside if his manager wants an experienced player in the middle, but the France right-back made his first appearance in three months in midweek. Arteta is also not fit enough to return to the side so we better hope ...
