Santi Cazorla says he has learnt a lot from his Spain international team-mates in the Premier League Pepe Reina, David Silva, Juan Mata and Fernando Torres.

Cazorla suffered disappointment in the Capital One Cup last night but he has made a big impact for the Gunners since his summer arrival from Malaga, hitting four goals for his new side.

And the 27-year-old says he has been helped by the likes of Liverpool goalkeeper Reina while settling in at the Emirates.

Asked how much he talks to his Spain team-mates, Cazorla told Four Four Two: “We do talk when we’re with the national squad, and I have learned a lot because they are all more experienced with English football.

“Pepe [Reina] has spent eight years with Liverpool and he has a very good understanding of the Premier League.”

He continued: “We also have a laugh and although it’s a bit early to be joking about winning the league, we joke with [David] Silva because his team are the defending champions and arguably the favourites.

“The beauty of the Premier League is how competitive it is: there are a lot of the teams fighting to win and that’s great for the supporters.”
