It was relief all-round at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon as the final whistle blew. An equaliser in the 91st minute was enough to share the points on a disappointing afternoon overall.
Arsenal took the lead in the 13th minute through the Chilean Alexis Sanchez who scored from the right hand side of the penalty area. However, the lead didn’t last long as Diame made a run making it 1-1 in the 17th. However, the goal should not have stood as there was foul on Flamini just before Diame had the shot.
This was one of a number of poor refereeing decisions on the afternoon. The referee had an awful game, often missing easy fouls to give such as a trip. Hull then took the lead straight after half time when Hernandez scored from a Huddlestone cross which Mertesacker should be disappointed with. Mertesacker was ball watching rather than attacking it.
