Cazorla has lit up the Barclays Premier League this season with a number of dazzling displays for the Gunners.
Cazorla told Marca: "Iniesta is the standard against which I measure myself.
"Playing by his side is something else. He's a total footballer in every sense. I try to copy the things he does, but it's very difficult. The problem is that when he does them he makes them look easy, but then you try it and you get all tangled up.
"Andres is a role model on and off the pitch."
