Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says Arsenal just need three points today
Arsenal have lost two league games on the bounce to slip 12 points off leaders Chelsea in the Premier League title race.
Manager Arsene Wenger is under pressure to step down at the end of the season as the club face the prospect of a 14th year without winning the league.
Arsenal host Hull in today’s early kick off (12.30pm) and Oxlade-Chamberlain is determined to get three points.
“We just need to win. We need three points and that’s the only thing that matters,” he told Sky Sports.

Arsenal fans are not impressed with their side to face Hull
“Obviously it’s nice to win convincingly and we’ll be looking to do that for sure.
“But at the end of the day if we win 1-0 and it’s a tough game that’s good enough for us as well.”
This is Hull’s 10th Premier League clash against Arsenal.
The Tigers have twice avoided defeat at the Emirates in recent years and could frustrate their hosts again today.
“It’s always important to get off to a good start,” Oxlade-Chamberlain added.
“We know they’re going to come and try and defend very well, we know what they are capable of doing.
“We’re going to have to get off to a fast start and try and rattle their cages to make it easy for us.”

Asked about the mood in the camp, Oxlade-Chamberlain added: “Down at the start of the week obviously. Understandably we were all very frustrated and disappointed with how the results had gone last week.
“But come Wednesday the mood started to pick back up, you put it behind you and focus on the next game.
“There are characters in the dressing room who put the positive energy back into the team. The spirit picks up and we focus on today.”
