Santi Cazorla spoke to the media after starring in Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Manchester City on Sunday. Read what he said below:

on showing fight and steel…
We played very well and we defended strongly. When we defend like that, we have many chances to win games.

on the gameplan…
They have so many top players - Silva and Aguero - so we needed to play together in defence and play on the counter-attack. I think today [we showed] a very good spirit.

on deserving it…
Of course. When I take a penalty, I only think to score. The most important thing is to help the team.

on a hardworking display…
Yeah but if we wanted to win today, we needed to defend together and work hard, because they are a very good team. The team today was perfect and the three points were very important for us.

on taking the free-kick for the second goal quickly…
I always try to [place] free-kicks there, because they are very dangerous for the goalkeeper and the defenders. Giroud was amazing - he’s a very important striker for us.
