Hull City 0-3 Arsenal Highlights

Arsenal kept control of the destiny of the fourth and final Champions League spot as Lukas Podolski scored twice in a comfortable win at Hull.

Arsenal, who move four points ahead of Everton, were given a fright early on when Shane Long blazed over.

But the Gunners took control as Santi Cazorla set up Aaron Ramsey to fire in and Podolski buried a half-volley.

Podolski turned in a loose ball after the break and Hull never threatened to peg back their FA Cup final opponents.
