‘It is great news that Mesut scored’

Santi Cazorla was in fine form as we beat Watford 3-1 at Vicarage Road on Saturday, opening the scoring from the penalty spot. Afterwards, he spoke to Arsenal Player and this is what he had to say:

on the performance…
It was a great performance because here it’s always difficult to win. They have a great team, long balls all the time. We need to concentrate for 90 minutes so it’s the best thing for us, the first win of the league so we are very happy.

on the penalty decision…
I don’t know because the referee maybe has a little bit of confusion. I don’t know if it’s a penalty or not but Alexis told me the defender touched him so it’s a great thing for us and the most important thing, it was a goal and I helped the team.

on Ozil’s rarely scoring a header…
No, I don’t think so! It is not the best for him, but it was a great goal with his head. It’s great news for us because Mesut is a very important player for us.

on Xhaka…
I feel very well. He’s a great player, we have a lot of players in this position, great players like Coquelin, Elneny, Jack Wilshere. So it’s very important to play together and we are happy to play with him.

on the spirit in the dressing room…
Yes [the spirit is good] because after one point in two games we needed to win today. So we are happy now, it’s confidence for the team. Now we have to rest a week, some players play with national teams and after that we have to think about Southampton at home and we need to win at home.
