Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla believes he still has plenty of areas that he has to improve on.

The Spaniard made the move to the Emirates Stadium in the summer and is looking to learn English and develop as a player.

“I have to learn English, this is a very good opportunity, Mikel,” Cazorla said to team-mate Mikel Arteta for AS.

“Everywhere you go you need a good English. And I’m getting very serious about the issue. So I’m enjoying it. You know what I thought after the first few games?

“Watching English football on TV is one thing but playing is another, there is a tremendous difference.

“I love this league, it’s spectacular but coming from Spain to the Premier is a huge leap.”
