Cazorla: Arsenal play like Spain

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla believes his side's style of play closely resembles the football played in Spain, admitting that has helped him settle into the Premier League.

Cazorla, 28, joined the Gunners from Malaga last season and has become the heart of Arsenal's attack, combining effectively with Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta to give Arsene Wenger's side greater fluency going forward.

The Spain international believes his seamless transition into English football has been buoyed by the similarity between Wenger's tactics and those in his home country.

"For me it is important to go out onto the pitch and be comfortable, and that has been the case since the first game," Cazorla said in the Arsenal matchday magazine. "I have always been at ease on the pitch. In my case too, you do not notice much difference between Arsenal and playing in Spain, because we are also a side who like to play with the ball.

"The boss has a philosophy of playing football, it is always trying to find attacking football, of having the ball and because of the characteristics of the players we have, it is what comes easiest to us."
