Hull 1-3 Arsenal
Cousin 65 Adebayor 30,Nasri 82,Bendtner 86
For the 2nd week in a row Nicklas Bendtner came off the bench to score and change the game for Arsenal.
Its seemed to be the same old Arsenal story of allowing Hull a root back into the game after going 1-0 through a great header from Adebayor. Hull didn’t create much in the 90min and I can only remember Almunia having one shot on goal to deal with. But surprise surprise the only time they hit the target they scored.
And it looked like a draw until Bendtner controled the ball well and feed it into the feet of Van persie, The dutch wizard passed out to Nasri who drove into the far cornor with his left foot ( Hleb who ) 2-1 to the Arsenal.
And then Bendtner played a lovlely 1-2 with Van Persie ( who had an assist with all 3 goals tonight ) to slot home Arsenals 3 on the night. It could of got even better with Bendtner smashing the post with a header in the final few seconds of the game.
Happy with the 3 points but it doesn’t cover up the cracks. This is not a championship winning team.
- Almunia 6.5 (Only had 1 shot to deal with all 90mins and it went in. Have to say he had no chance with it, but it would be nice if he kept a clean sheet away from home )
- Sagna 7.5 ( Mr reliable, Powerful at the back and showed great pace going forward )
- Clichy 5.5 ( Ripped apart from Mendy, At fault for the goal )
- Toure 7.0 ( looked pretty solid )
- Djourou 6.0 ( Looked pretty clumsy tonight, Lucky not to give away a pen )
- Denilson 6.5 ( Gave the ball way to many times for my liking )
- Diaby 7.0 ( Didnt see the surging runs, Did ok but not his best game )
- Nasri 8.0 ( Scored a wonderful goal and showed some nice skills, Who the fu<k is Alex Pleb )
- Eboue 6.0 ( A few nice runs but he missed a great chance to make it 2-0 and his passing and crossing tonight was poor )
- Adebayor 6.5 ( Scored a good header but driffed out of the game )
- R Van Persie 8.5 ( Involed in everything that was good tonight. 3 assists and unlucky not to score with a world class freekick that thunded off the bar ) MOTM
- Benthner 7.5 ( Great sub by Wenger, He changed the game )
