Next Match: at home to Everton, December 08
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Group F)
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knows it is still too early to write off any side's hope of winning the Barclays Premier League after his men maintained their four-point advantage with a 2-0 win over Hull at the Emirates Stadium. Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner scored his first Arsenal goal since March 2011, heading home after just 90 seconds to set the Gunners on their way, with Mesut Ozil extended the lead at the start of the second half, finishing off a fine passing exchange with Aaron Ramsey. The Gunners' victory saw them maintain a four-point lead over second-placed Chelsea, who won 4-3 at relegation battlers Sunderland, and move further ahead of Manchester United, who lost at home to Everton. Wenger, though, has seen enough in his long tenure not to draw any concrete conclusions of how the season will eventually pan out just yet. "It is a surprising defeat (to Everton), but it is still early," Wenger said. "We have seen that before, 12 points, only on us. We have just to keep winning to have a chance, and not worry too much about the others."
