KINGSTON UPON HULL (AFP) - Lukas Podolski scored twice as Arsenal claimed an important 3-0 victory at Hull City on Sunday, April 20, 2014, in his side's quest for a top-four finish and FA Cup success.

In a preview of next month's FA Cup final at Wembley, Arsenal scored an important psychological edge over Steve Bruce's team after Aaron Ramsey shot them in front.

German forward Podolski then added two goals in the space of eight minutes, either side of half-time.

Following on from his two-goal display against West Ham United in mid-week, it meant that in the space of five days, he has doubled his tally of league goals for the season to eight.
