Arsenal went into this evening’s game with an unchanged starting line-up from last week which raised questions. However, Wenger was vindicated as the performance from all of the players was excellent.  Arsenal took the lead in the 11th minute after Sanchez capitalised on a mistake from Cahill. Arsenal then made it two with a goal from Walcott after a lovely move and Ӧzil finished the scoring by scoring the third.

Arsenal made it three consecutive wins to move them up the table. Arsenal looked shaky at the back and made hard work off the win especially after Hull went down to ten men just before half time. Arsenal took the lead after an Iwobi shot deflected off Sanchez. Livermore then conceded a penalty after deliberate hand ball which got him sent off. However, the resultant penalty taken by Sanchez was saved. Walcott put us two up before Cech conceded a penalty which was subsequently scored. Sanchez then scored the third before Xhaka scored a superb long range effort to make it four.

A 94th minute penalty was enough to take all three points for Arsenal but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Arsenal went one nil down through a Cech own goal after a free kick from Tadic hit the bar. However, Koscielny levelled it up from a corner with an overhead kick. Arsenal then knocked on the door throughout the second half and maybe should have gone 2 -1 down but Cazorla scored the penalty to win it.

An outstanding first half display made sure Arsenal picked up their first win of the season. Arsenal played some of the best football in ages.  Arsenal went one up after Cazorla converted a penalty after a foul was given on Sanchez. Sanchez then made it two before Ӧzil made it three. Arsenal looked a different side second half which was down to the Watford changes who pulled one back. However, Arsenal saw the match after some nervous moments to pick up the three points.

Arsenal pick up their first point of the season away at the premier league champions. A good point in the end considering we should have been down to ten men and probably should have given away a penalty near full time. However, the performances of Koscielny, Xhaka and Coquelin were all promising in their defensive roles.
