3 Things We Learnt From Arsenal’s Horrendous 2-2 Draw With Hull City

Danny Welbeck popped up with a late injury-time winner to spare Arsenal’s blushes as the Gunners drew 2-2 at home to Hull City. Having taken the lead early in the game, the home side fell behind early in the second half and their late pressure eventually paid off as the visitors’ defence, which had remained resolute for much of the game finally gave in. Alexis Sanchez starred in what was an otherwise disappointing result for the Gunners. A result which leaves them in sixth, with just two wins and five draws from their opening eight games.

Here are the major talking points from the game.

1. Either side could have won the game

At the end of the game, there is always a manager who walks out pleased with the result. whether it is because their team won or drew or even lost but by a small margin, one manager is always happy. But every so often there comes a game in which neither manager is particularly pleased with the result. And the game between Arsenal and Hull City was one of those occasions. When the final whistle blew, both Arsene Wenger and Steve Bruce had plenty of reasons to be disappointed with the result.

After dominating early on and taking the lead in the 13th minute after a brilliant solo goal by Alexis Sanchez, many thought that it was going to be easy for the Gunners. But barely a few minutes after taking the lead, they were back on level terms from a goal which should have been disallowed. Right from kickoff in the second half, Hull scored to take the lead and it looked as though they were going to walk away with the win. But the home side’s relentless late pressure paid off and they got the equaliser in stoppage time. Even then, it was just a point and a result that neither manager was too happy about.
