Santi Cazorla says playing in the middle has helped him rediscover his best form.

The Spain midfielder has featured 20 times this season and produced his finest performances in December, scoring all four of his league goals.

Cazorla has also created 47 chances for his team-mates – a figure only Alexis Sanchez can better.

I have more space in the middle, more possibilities to score and assist, and I like this position very much

“I always try to make goals,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player. “It’s important for me because I am a midfielder and I always want to help the team score, and I will try to make more before the end of the season.

“I have more space [in the middle], more possibilities to score and assist, and I like this position very much. I always can help the team and I love when I play in the middle.”

Cazorla’s displays saw him voted Vitality Player of the Month for December by Arsenal fans, and he also picked up the PFA Fans’ award.

“I can only give thanks to the fans for voting for me,” the midfielder said. “I’m very happy when I play at home, so thanks for the support.

“I want to continue to play at this level for the rest of the season. I always want to help the team with goals. I hope to score more until the end of the season. It’s very important for me and the team.”
