Arsenal scored a late winner after they appeared to be heading for a draw against an off form Hull City side who were down to ten men for more than half the match.
Andrei Arshavin continued his good run of form to give the Gunners the lead but Sol Campbell was adjudged to have brought down Jan Vennegor in the box and Jimmy Bullard duly put away the spot kick with aplomb.
The Emirates side then bombarded the home side who had George Boateng sent off for an awful challenge on Bacary Sagna. Nicklas Bendtner then popped up with a crucial winner in the dying moments to further strengthen the north London sides push for the Premier League title. The Dane tucked away the winner after Boaz Myhill could only palm away a terrific 30 yard effort from Denilson.
