Arsenal 2-0 Hull City - Gunners comfortably move into fourth round of FA Cup

Emirates Inside

Arsenal comfortably saw off Hull City this evening in a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal started their FA Cup campaign this evening, and faced a rematch against Hull City after May's FA Cup final at Wembley.

That game was dramatic, with Hull taking an early 2-0 lead before Arsenal roared back to score three goals and win the game 3-2, ending Arsene Wenger's nine year trophy drought.

Tonight, the meeting wasn't quite sure action-packed, with Arsenal comfortably swatting the Tigers aside in an easy 2-0 victory.

Arsenal dominated the game from start to finish, and opened the scoring from a corner in the first half, with giant centre back Per Mertesacker powering a header past Steve Harper and into the net.

The Gunners knocked on the door repeatedly after that but couldn't find the second goal, before Alexis Sanchez put the gloss on the win.

The Chilean collected a pass from Santi Cazorla, swiveled and bent a superb striker past Harper into the corner of the goal.

Wenger's men move into the fourth round, whilst Hull are left to focus on the league, which manager Steve Bruce may actually prefer.
