Santi Cazorla has hailed Arsenal’s performance in beating Tottenham 2-0 in their FA Cup third-round clash on Saturday evening.

The Spaniard opened the scoring with a firm drive beyond Hugo Lloris, before Tomas Rosicky wrapped up the victory in the second half.

Cazorla was delighted to win their second north London derby of the season, but called for focus for the season ahead.

We played really well as a team. Tottenham have some good players but we played at a good level and we just need to continue that now

“We played really well as a team,” he said. “Tottenham have some good players but we played at a good level and we just need to continue that now.

“We need to play every game very well. Now we have a rest for a week and then we’re away at Aston Villa - we need to win that.

Cazorla praised Theo Walcott’s performance as he played a key role through the middle as a central striker against Tottenham.

“He is a different [type of] player because we always play Giroud or Bendtner up front,” he said. “But Theo is very quick and played very well.”
