Nicklas Bendtner proved Arsenal's unlikely hero as the Dane notched an early strike to set the Premier League leaders on their way to a 2-0 victory over Hull City.

Bendtner, starting in the league for the first time this season in place of Olivier Giroud, headed in Carl Jenkinson's right wing cross after just two minutes to put the Gunners in front.

It looked like a prelude for convincing home win but the Tigers kept things tight for much of the remainder of the first half.

That all changed within two minutes of the restart when Mesut Ozil ran onto Aaron Ramsey's neat reverse pass to slide the ball in from eight yards.

The visitors threatened rarely as the Gunners cruised through the remainder of the match to retain their top of the table advantage.
