We knew that Cazorla could be great, but I don't know if any Arsenal fans expected him to be this good right off the bat. The little Spaniard is able to get the offense going by making great runs through the middle of the pitch.
He is the definition of a complete player. He can dribble really well, as his quick feet make him astonishingly good at maneuvering tight spaces. His vision is brilliant, almost setting Olivier Giroud up for the fourth Arsenal goal on Saturday, and his shooting skills are shown in this left-footed strike.
Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, is doing spectacular things. Like most midfielders who came out of the Barcelona academy, he is great at calming the team every time he gets the ball in the middle of the park, and we all know his vision is superb.
His biggest improvement this year is his defensive ability. Last year, he played further forward, but now he is settling back and winning a lot of balls in the midfield. He is even winning many headers and showing his hustle all over the place.
These two guys' styles are complementary. While Arteta gets the offense going with passing, Cazorla likes to make runs first; his calm is the opposite of Cazorla's energy and fire.
Arteta and Cazorla are really helping to prove the stereotype that Spaniards make the best midfielders, and hopefully for Arsenal, they will continue to do that.
Because right now, they are doing a wonderful job.
