Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal all but secured a top-four finish in the Premier League for the 18th consecutive season with a 3-1 victory at struggling Hull on Monday. Arsene Wenger's side swept into a three-goal half-time lead thanks to Sanchez's double and a strike from Aaron Ramsey before Stephen Quinn pulled one back for Hull after the break. The victory put third-placed Arsenal nine points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, who have only three matches remaining and a vastly inferior goal difference to the Gunners, and effectively guaranteed their qualification for the Champions League.
