Danny Welbeck scored a stoppage-time equalizer as injury-hit Arsenal fought back to draw 2-2 against Hull in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners, with a makeshift defense and missing the injured Mesut Ozil, took an early lead through Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium.

Mid-table Hull hit back with an equalizer from Mohamed Diame, as Arsenal claimed a foul in the build-up, and then took the lead right after the start of the second half through Abel Hernandez.

Arsenal, which lost Jack Wilshere to what could prove to be another ankle problem, looked to have been frustrated before Welbeck scored in the first of six minutes of added time.

The hosts almost snatched it at the death through Kieran Gibbs, who was denied by stand-in Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic.
