Santi Cazorla says it is “amazing” to play alongside Francis Coquelin.

The pair played an important role as Arsène Wenger’s side secured their first home win of the season on Saturday, with Coquelin winning the ball back for Arsenal’s first goal and Cazorla creating the second with a precise free-kick

The Spaniard believes his midfield partner is “one of the best in his position” and is enjoying their flourishing partnership.

We are lucky because he plays for Arsenal and I enjoy it a lot with him in this position

“It’s amazing playing with him,” Cazorla told the Final Whistle. “He’s helped me a lot. He plays well, he defends well and I think he’s one of the best players in this position.

“We are lucky because he plays for Arsenal and I enjoy it a lot with him in this position.

“I feel better every game. The most important thing for me is always to help the team.

“I had an assist for Giroud and I had so many chances to score but the keeper made good saves.

“I feel good and I always want to help the team, that’s the most important thing for me.”
