Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski grabbed a brace against Hull in a comfortable 3-0 win at the KC Stadium. Sunday afternoon's victory saw the Gunners maintain their slim lead over fifth-placed Everton in the race for the last Champions League position.
The visitors took the lead after half an hour from midfielder Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman collected a pass from Santi Cazorla and finished with a fierce low drive into the bottom corner.
Ramsey went from scorer to creator after chesting a pass into Podolski’s path in the area, and the German international scored a superbly taken first-time volley into the bottom corner to double his side’s lead before the break.
Podolski put the game beyond doubt 10 minutes into the second half after scoring the rebound from Aaron Ramsey’s initially saved effort.
Arsenal ran out worthy winners to do the double over Hull City, which also ensured Everton remain one point below them in the table.
