Who is this Spanish wizard? The 2007 spanish player of the year Santi Cazorla has made an enthusiastic start to his premier league career at Arsenal. With 3 goals and 2 assists in 10 games Cazorla had brought an immediate impact on the Arsenal strike force. Cazorla, an ambidextrous and therefore versatile midfielder, can play centrally or on either wing. This is a danger to any defense in the Premier League. 50 caps for what’s said to be the best ever international team represents his ability if words cannot.
So what suits Cazorla to Arsenal? For years since the 2002 and 2004 Premier League wins, Arsenal have lacked flare and the player to finish the well created chances from mesmerizing possession football. Cazorla has shown the potential to be this player. With the exit of Arsenal’s main finisher Robin Van Persie Arsenal need an attacking player with the experience in competitive football.
Best performance to date? Arsenal’s comprehensive 3-1 win over West Ham showed Cazorla’s exquisite passing and dribbling abilities, and to top it off an awesome strike to round off the team’s win. Cazorla spread himself over the pitch like jam, bossing the middle third of the pitch, stringing together passes much similar to those of his Spanish team mates Xavi and Iniesta. Cazorla was voted as the fan’s man of the match after he shone for the Gunners.
…he shows more promise every game…
What can we expect from Cazorla and Arsenal? As Cazorla settles in at Arsenal, he shows more promise every game. Snatching a late goal against Manchester United, however much it didn’t matter, showed that he can score against any club, whatever standard. Again receiving the Arsenal fan’s man of the match. Arsenal could easily reach the top 5 this year, and Cazorla could easy get in the top 5 scorers.
