Cape Town - Arsenal all but sealed Champions League qualification for an 18th successive season after they eased past relegation-threatened Hull City 3-1 in the Premier League on Monday.
Steve Bruce's Hull had beaten Crystal Palace and Liverpool in
their previous two matches but this defeat meant they slipped a place to 17th,
going below Leicester on goal difference.
However, Hull are still a point above the relegation zone heading
into Saturday's match at home to bottom-of-the-table Burnley, who need a win at
the KC Stadium to avoid being demoted to the second-tier Championship.
"We have to respond," said Hull manager Bruce.
have to dust ourselves down and get ready for the weekend and the next few
games because we are still in there with a shout (of avoiding relegation).
"It (the Burnley game) is not going to keep us up or send us
down because there are still two games after that. We still have it all to do
and it is a big game, we are aware of that."
