Tigers Shocker: Hull City Upsets Arsenal

Dev AshishAnalyst ISeptember 27, 2008

Tonight in a major upset, Hull City defeated Arsenal, 2-1, in the New Emirates Stadium.

After wunderkind Theo Walcott put Arsenal ahead with a dazzling run down the right flank, causing an own goal from Paul McShane in 52 minutes, Marcio Geovanni struck a marvellous volley to bring the Tigers equal.

Four minutes later, Hull City stunned the stadium when Daniel Cousin headed the Tigers into the lead off a corner.

Hull City displayed great tenacity and courage taking on Arsene Wenger's boys, who had been on fire lately. But some excellent defending and great saves from the 'keeper, Myhill, kept Arsenal from equalising.

Arsenal had their chances, but Hull City held on to clinch a major victory through some dogged and determined defending.

The Tigers continue their dream run, not riding their luck but through some excellent football and a positive attitude.
