Alexis Sanchez scored a brace in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Hull City in the 25th round of the English Premier League on Saturday.
The Chilean frontman bundled in the opener with his hand before sealing all three points late on from the penalty spot to send Arsenal up to third in the Premier League.
The result eases some of the pressure on Arsene Wenger after poor showings from Arsenal in recent fixtures and the manager was pleased with his side’s resilience after the game, while admitting that Sanchez’s goal could have been ruled out.
“I felt we were resilient, focused,” Wenger told Sky Sports.
“It was not easy against a good side. There was an edgy atmosphere but as a player you have to cope with that. Maybe (Sanchez’s goal was unfairly given). Sorry for that but I cannot influence that.”
“Our job is not to focus too much on what is said and focus on what we are responsible – the performance on the pitch.”
With the victory, Arsenal moved temporarily into third place in the table – tied on points with second-placed Tottenham Hotspurs.
