Santi Cazorla may be 30 years old, but he is the only other Arsenal player to come anywhere near the form of Alexis Sanchez. His four goals and excellent performances have not only won him the Arsenal Player of the Month award, but he has also been named as the PFA winner in the Premiership as well.
Theo Walcott may be back in contention for a starting spot, and Mesut Ozil is expected to rejoin the squad next weekend. Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey are also expected back in the next few weeks, but I don’t believe Cazorla should be dropped to make room for ANYONE else at the moment.
As the Gunners legend Ray Parlour said on Sky Sports: “He’s been superb. He’s really stepped up his game. He’s such an influential player on the ball, he can make things happen, he can see a pass, certainly in the last month or so.
“He’s knows there’s competition now. If he keeps performing the way he is, I’m sure he’ll be the first name on the team sheet in that midfield area, because he’s been absolutely brilliant over the last month.”
If you had to choose between Cazorla and Ozil right now, who would you pick?
