What Arsenal have missed from Santi Cazorla this season

Cazorla is out for the rest of the 2016/17 season

There’s no doubt that Arsenal have suffered since Santi Cazorla has been sidelined through injury but why?

Ever since the little Spaniard was subbed off injured against Ludogorets earlier in the season, Arsenal have struggled in midfield, making it glaringly obvious how much the side rely on his ability to dictate play.

This brilliant video by ArsenalVideosHD demonstrates exactly where this Arsenal side are lacking since Santi has been sidelined with clear examples of moments in which he’s been crucial.

From creating space for his teammates and driving play forward, to allowing his peers more time to make a decision or move, he’s simply an unreal player.
