Morgan, Ozil and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal beat Hull

Piers Morgan and Mesut Ozil both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal beat Hull City 3-1 at the KC Stadium

Arsenal moved to within three points of second-placed Manchester City thanks to a convincing 3-1 win over Hull City at the KC Stadium on Monday night.

Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring at the KC Stadium with a deflected free-kick in the 28th minute, before Aaron Ramsey netted a second just five minutes later.

Sanchez then rounded goalkeeper Steve Harper to slot home and make it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time.

Stephen Quinn’s header gave Hull hope after the break, but the Gunners held on to move to within three points of second-placed Manchester City.

Monday’s game prompted plenty of activity on social media, and here are some of our favourite updates.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (@Alex_OxChambo) is a happy man after watching his team-mates seal victory: “Great win from the boys tonight and good to see @JackWilshere back on the pitch #COYG”

Gunners playmaker Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) is thrilled to see the Gunners reach the 70-point mark: “Job done. 70 points. #YaGunnersYa.”

Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) has been impressed by the Gunners’ improvement in recent weeks: “Arsenal’s support play (options when in possession) is superb….”

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) singles out Aaron Ramsey for special praise: “Best Whatshisname has played all season. #afc”

And Morgan is then forced to defend himself: “Arsenal fans’ hypocrisy over Whatshisname is hilarious. We ALL slated him when he was crap, we ALL praise him now he’s brilliant. End. #afc”

And that just leaves Lukas Podolski (@Podolski10) to have the final say with a well-chosen hashtag: “#HappyStTotteringhamsDay”
