Arsenal's Podolski lauds Cazorla: 'He is an amazing player'

Lukas Podolski has heaped praise on Arsenal teammate Santi Cazorla following Tuesday night's 3-1 victory over West Ham United.

The Spanish playmaker set up the Gunners' first goal when he fed a sublime ball for Podolski to turn and fire home in the 44th minute.

That goal levelled it for Arsenal before Olivier Giroud and Podolski added to the scoreline in the second half recording a vital win for the north Londoners.

In the wake of the victory, match-winner Podolski spoke highly of Cazorla, labelling him as a top-quality player.

"Everyone knows he is an amazing player. He can play the final ball and see a pass between three or four players," he told Sky Sports.

"Not a lot can pass like that, it was a great pass and it was important before half time. The three points stay at the Emirates and now we focus on the next game."

Arsenal, who returned to fourth spot on the Premier League table, next meet FA Cup final opponents Hull City at the KC Stadium on Sunday.
