The Gunners ran out comprehensive winners as Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring for the travelling side before Podolski’s brace was enough for Arsene Wenger’s men to grab full three points.
Steve Bruce’s men will however be regret missing golden opportunities as Jake Livermore’s effort crashed against the post while Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long squandered golden opportunities to dent Arsenal’s charge.
Ramsey’s well driven finish setup the encounter following a fine layoff from Santi Cazorla the Gunners while Podolski thundered in from Ramsey’s chest cushioned cross. The German then made the scoreline emphatic as he slotted in from just seven yards out in the second half.
