Some of the Arsenal players have been celebrating on social media after Arsenal eased to a 4-1 victory over 10-man Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Granit Xhaka completed the scoring as Arsenal beat Hull City 4-1.
Back in action after the worldwide break, Arsene Wenger's men had to come from behind at the Emirates to eventually sneak past Southampton with a last-gasp penalty last weekend. I don't know why it did not happen; we have [a] pecking order, it was not planned for Sanchez to take it. As I told you, we need players who go behind the defenders and he can do that well.
A goal from a flying Theo Walcott, two from makeshift striker Alexis Sanchez and a screamer from new boy Granit Xhaka, secured the win and made a Robert Snodgrass penalty irrelevant.
The Nigeria global has been reinstated to the Arsenal team after overcoming injury and played in the Premier League side's 1-1 draw against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek. "We weren't ready physically at the start of the season, we are now much better so let's hope we can continue".
"But we remained serious and in the end we won the game in a convincing way, I would say, overall".

More positively, Phelan is excited about the prospect of facing Arsenal, last season's Premier League runners-up. Despite a very solid performance by David Ospina in Paris, Wenger said he will return Petr Cech to the the starting position against Hull City tomorrow.
Those things together in our world are a big quality and so I think he has interesting ingredients, but one game does not make a career'.
"In the last two games, we were behind and came back into it".
Hull's joy after the 79th minute goal was short-lived as Sanchez slotted in Arsenal's third goal. Saturday's victory was their seventh in a row on Humberside, where their last defeat came in 1915.
"I think today in the first half he was influential on the ball". Overall, he's only 20 years old so you could see that he has gained in confidence now.
"The players need to take credit for what they've given, but also need to learn lessons from what they didn't achieve in this game".
