Cape Town - Aaron Ramsey has praised the “little magician” Santi Cazorla after the Spaniard’s superb display against Manchester City on Sunday.

Cazorla has been in sumptuous form of late and crowned another exceptional performance with a goal and assist at the home of the Premier League champions.

Ramsey says he is overjoyed for his team-mate, and was pleased with the team’s all-round showing.

“Santi's a little magician on the pitch,” Ramsey told Arsenal Player.

“You saw him out there so many times, how he wriggles out of certain situations, and he had a very good game.

“We’re delighted for him and hopefully he can continue his form as well.

“It was obviously a good game for us. We defended really well as a team.

“We were really hard to break down and we took our chances when we needed to, so it was a very complete performance today. “In the past we’ve been a bit too open at Manchester City. It’s been quite difficult for us in the last few years but we wanted to put things right and we definitely put in a good performance to come away with three points.”

Ramsey enjoyed his return to action at Etihad Stadium, having missed the last six weeks due to injury.

“I felt good,” he added. “In the last 20 minutes I was blowing a bit and I had to come off with a bit of cramp but I’m pleased with how things have gone.

“Hopefully now I can get a few more games and start to kick on to have a strong finish to the season.”
