When on 7 August, confirmed the signing of Santi Cazorla for Arsenal, much of Gunners fans could not imagine the magnitude that could reach the Spanish player.
Since the departure of Dennis Bergkamp’s team in 2006, the team has not had a player with such quality, vision and verticality. What happened last night at Madejski Stadium, where he scored his first hat-trick, it was more than the confirmation of their settlement in the team. The impact Cazorla is having in the Premiership, could only be surpassed by another compatriot, Michu, Swansea player, top scorer at the moment.
Since coming to Arsenal, is returning to play in its ideal position behind the striker, where his vision helps the team giving the final pass, or where he can use his powerful shot (despite his short stature) with both legs. In his last season at Malaga, was listing in one of the bands, or accompanied the midfielder in the work of building the game.
To date, the period of adaptation to the Premier has been fast, but this does not mean we’ve already seen the most you can offer. This has only just begun.
One factor that will allow both Arsenal level, as the increase Cazorla itself, is the appearance in the team of Jack Wilshere. It is the perfect complement to Santi, as it is perfect for outputting the ball first, apart from a player with great quality, which will allow the associate, fast combinations, the first touch, making the flow of the game increase.
With respect to the game last night, against Reading, little to tell. Party control at all times. I leave the summary of all the goals, including a hat-trick of Santi.
