Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs was pleased with his side's 2-0 win over Hull City and believes the triumph over the Tigers at the Emirates will help the north London side “get stronger”.
Arsene Wenger's side bounced back from successive defeats with a win over the Tigers as Alexis Sanchez's brace sealed three vital points for the Gunners.
"It was a good chance to show a response and we certainly did that," said the left-back who, had his first start for the Gunners since Boxing Day. “But still at times I thought we could play a lot better. We've got a squad that can cause a lot of damage, so we will tie up those ends – defensively and in the final third – sharpen up and look even stronger.
"It's obviously nice to get a clean sheet as well after a couple of defeats, so we can look forward now."
Gibbs gave his opinion on why referee Mark Clattenburg turned down Hull's appeals for a red card when he fouled Lazar Markovic.
"I definitely took a chance," he said. "Lolo and Musti both jumped for the ball, and I did actually try and go for the ball.
"Mark's view was that the ball was going away from the goal, so that's all I can say."
