Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed matchwinner Santi Cazorla after victory over Aston Villa.

Cazorla struck twice in the 2-1 win.

Wenger said: “He fights until the last second of the game and gives ­absolutely everything. You tell him to play left, yes, central, yes, right, yes.

“He doesn’t say, ‘I can only play in the middle’. He has a fantastic, humble attitude to help the team and he plays where he’s needed, that is fantastic.

“He’s so short and with a low centre of gravity – a bit like Jack. So his change of direction is very good. You don’t know if he is right-footed or left-footed. I don’t really know myself.”
