Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger says Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla is playing the best football of his career.

The 30-year-old has been in fine form of late, scoring five times since the start of December and winning the club’s player of the month award.

Cazorla was man of the match in Arsenal’s win at Manchester City at the weekend, and Wenger feels he is benefitting from playing more centrally.

“He is a very talented football player,” Wenger told arsenal.com.

"Since he has played centrally he has taken [his game to] another dimension, because on the flank he was a bit more exposed to things where he was not at his best.

“In the middle of the park, he gets you out of situations where you are under pressure. He is always technically perfect and in our recent games he has certainly been in the best form of his career.”

“Santi is happy to play, every day he is happy to be with the ball and to go out there. He is the perfect example for every young player to follow.”

Arsenal travel on Sunday to face Brighton and Hove Albion in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
