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.
