Gunners players were delighted to take maximum points from their hosting of Hull City to maintain their superiority at the top of the Premier League.
Arsenal once again exhibited a collected, possession-based attacking display in order to pick up a further win on match-day 14 of the Premier League, their 11th victory of the current domestic campaign and a punctuation mark to the message sent to their detractors in front of television cameras - continue to write them off at your peril, they keep winning regardless.
Becoming increasingly vocal on social media, a number of prominent members of the playing roster took to Twitter to express their delight at the result, none more so than Nicklas Bendtner, who scored within the opening moments to return his first Arsenal goal for 1,071 days - something he described as a 'fantastic feeling'.
A number of stars made a common sentiment, that it was 'great' to maintain a clean sheet, their fifth in six games now, with both Lukas Podolski and Aaron Ramsey touching on Wojciech Szczesny's ability between the sticks and the back-four's shielding prowess ahead of him.

And finally… why is it that everyone - particularly Santi Cazorla - wants to molest Mesut Ozil?
