Chuba Akpom celebrates on Twitter as Hull progress but parent club Arsenal crash out of League Cup

The Arsenal striker is currently on loan at Hull City.

Yesterday was certainly a night to forget for Arsenal. Not only were they pasted 3-0 by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday they also lost two key players.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came off early for Theo Walcott, who soon followed, replaced by youngster Ismael Bennacer.

In the end Arsenal looked disjointed as The Owls ran amok at Hillsborough.

It was definitely not a good night to be an Arsenal player.

Unless of course you are an Arsenal player currently out on loan at Hull City.

Because while Arsenal were being kicked to touch in the Capital One Cup the Tigers were making their way into the quarter-finals.

Hull defeated Leicester City on penalties and there is no doubt that Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom, on loan at the KC Stadium from Arsenal, seemed to enjoy the result:

Akpom, an England under-21 international, is though of very highly at Arsenal and is believed to have a future with the club. He came on in the 74th minute for Hull yesterday and he scored the fourth goal in the shootout for his loan club.

Hopefully he can continue to thrive at his new environment and blossom into a striker worthy of such nights with Arsenal.
