‘He has a good touch on the game’

Arsene Wenger was in good form following his side’s 3-1 win at Watford on Saturday. He was particularly impressed with a number of his players. To find out who, read on:

on Ozil…
Especially in the first half [he was very good]. In the second half he dropped physically, but of course, we need him. I think what we’ve seen from him today is what we want from him, to give assists but he is going to score goals. So I am very happy that he scored today because that is what he is trying to add to his game.

on Holding…
An outstanding performance. I’m happy that you noticed that, because it’s important that a player who comes from Bolton, comes to a club where he concedes four goals in the first game at home, he has to play under huge pressure at Leicester and today he performs the way he does. I think it’s not easy and it shows some great potential and I am convinced that he will give a fight to all the centre backs.

on the Xhaka and Cazorla partnership…
Xhaka has a good touch on the game. He is calm, his passing is effective, he has a left foot as well so he can find as well the opposite side sometimes. He’s good on the ball and he wants the ball and he’s shown physical strength in his locker and he’s adapted very quickly.
