Arsenal took revenge on Hull City 3-1 (Saturday, 1/17) when they visited KC Stadium. At first, it seemed a draw when, in the 65th minute, Daniel Cousin equalized Emmanuel Adebayor's first goal he had scored in the 30th minute. Nevertheless, Samir Nasri and Nicklas Bendtner relieved the Gunners after scoring in the last nine minutes (Nasri 82', Bendtner 86').
"When they scored to make it 1-1 I was a bit worried. But we stuck together and played some good football," Robin van Persie told Setanta Sports 1.
"The win was really important because this was a difficult away game. The first game was in our minds, it was tough for us to come back."
