Santi Cazorla has had a fantastic start to his career at Arsenal, scoring 11 Premier League goals and providing eight assists. The Spanish international can play anywhere across the midfield and has an eye for goal. For Spain, he has played with the likes of Andres Iniesta, Xavi, David Silva and Fabregas, so when a player really impresses him you know they must be something special.
Jack Wilshere was not quite fit to play when Cazorla first arrived, and when he did return there was a period of adjustment for quite a few members of the Gunners while they got used to each other. Now they are getting more comfortable with each other, and Santi is now really appreciating the immense talent of Wilshere and what he brings to Arsenal. .......Read the full article here

Santi Cazorla has been outstanding for Arsenal since moving from La Liga side Malaga in the summer. His name was unfamiliar to many people in this country and their is a common assumption that he is struggling to get a place in the Spanish national side. Cazorla may get a rare start this week as Spain travel to Belarus for the first of two World Cup qualifiers, the second being against France.
Spain are blessed with lots of talented midfielders, many of whom have similar playing styles, such as Iniesta, Fabregas, Silva and Xavi. Cazorla could get the nod, however, with his Arsenal performances drawing interest all over the world. Cazorla has already got 48 caps for Spain and two European championship winner’s medals. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal fans will be surprised at the player that Arsene Wenger chose to compare Santi Cazorla to because of his connection with the hated Tottenham Hotspur. Wenger compared our new favourite player to none other than Glenn Hoddle.
“Cazorla is like Glenn Hoddle in some ways.
“Left footed, right footed, you could not say what he was and Cazorla is similar.
“I don’t remember anyone else I have worked with who was as two-footed and it is so important to have this quality in the modern game.
“He has the ability to make everyone a better player and that is why I feel he is fantastic to watch.” .......Read the full article here

When Santi Cazorla first heard about the interest from Arsenal this summer, he was flattered but wanted some advice about the wisdom of the move. His team mate at Villareal before he moved to Malaga was the one and only Robert Pires, so who better to call.

“Everything so far has been true and I’m very happy here.” .......Read the full article here

Santi Cazorla is enjoying the freedom given to him by Wenger by AM
Santi Cazorla has been Arsenal’s signing of the season and one of the best piece of business Wenger has done in recent past. The former Malaga star has adapted very quickly to the life in the Premier League and has been one of the most influential players in the squad this season.
Cazorla’s versatility is well known and was one of the reasons Wenger got interested him in the first place. He can play nearly in any role in the midfield, from being a central midfielder to winger and now playing in the hole behind the striker at Arsenal. The Spanish international has played as a wide attacker for most of his career in Malaga and Villarreal, but he has expressed his delight at the free role that Wenger has handed over to him. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal could completely derail City’s chances of winning the Premiership on Sunday, but Wenger acknowledged they have some quality players when he was asked if he thought Van Persie should be favourite to win the top accolade.
“Van Persie is a strong contender, certainly,” said Wenger. “His focus has always been very great but his consistent presence has not been fantastic. .......Read the full article here
