Santi Cazorla says there is “not much difference” between the Spanish style of play he is used to and the attacking approach adopted by Arsenal.

Cazorla has been one of the Gunners’ standout performers this season after sealing a summer transfer to north London from Malaga back in August.

And the Spain international believes his country’s attacking approach is very similar to how Arsène Wenger sets his team out to play.

“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 told Arsenal’s matchday programme.

“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.”

Sixth-placed Arsenal travel to the Stadium of Light on Saturday to take on Sunderland.
