The hosts could have doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Per Mertesacker's header almost fell to Jenkinson at the near post, but Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor made a good save at the last moment.

Minutes later Bendtner came close again when he found himself in a good position, but his effort went wide.

McGregor was called into action again after the half-hour mark when he was forced into a good save from Aaron Ramsey's long-range effort.
