Ozil, Podolski and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal sink Hull in style
Mesut Özil and Lukas Podolski both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal beat Hull City 3-0 at the KC Stadium
Lukas Podolski scored twice as Arsenal remained in fourth place in the Premier League thanks to a comfortable win over Hull City.
Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring after half an hour before Podolski made it 2-0 before half-time with a low shot. And the Germany international capped off the win when he finished from close range shortly after half-time.
The victory moved the Gunners four points clear of fifth-placed Everton ahead of the Toffees’ clash with Manchester United.
