Jamie Redknapp: This Arsenal midfielder one of my favourite players
The former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder heaps praise on Arsenal star Santi Cazorla
Jamie Redknapp has revealed that Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is one of his favourite Premier League players.
The Gunners midfielder has endured an injury-hit start to the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
The 31-year-old has started seven of the north London side’s top-flight fixtures so far after picking up an injury in recent months.
The former Villarreal man is currently sidelined for Arsenal’s successive stalemates with Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.
Former Liverpool and Tottenham captain Redknapp believes Arsenal have missed Cazorla’s influence in midfielder over the past month or so.
“One player they sorely miss is Santi Cazorla. He’s one of my favourite players in the league. I love watching him play and when he’s not there they are a different team. He offers so much skill and guile,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but 10 points adrift of eventual champions Leicester City.
Wenger hasn’t led the Gunners to their top-flight crown since Arsenal completed their famous unbeaten season in 2003-04.
The north London side drew 2-2 with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night after successive 1-1 stalemates with title rivals Tottenham and Manchester United.
Arsenal signed five players in the summer transfer window.
