Cazorla was quick to praise his fellow Spaniard Arteta, particularly for helping him settle so quickly at the Emirates Stadium.
"There is a reason he is the vice-captain of the team: he is a reference player in the dressing room," Cazorla said.
"He has helped me a lot.
"He knew I was a new signing, that it would be a positive experience for me but that I would also need time. He has had a calming effect on me.
"He has shown his confidence in me, and it is clear that Mikel has been key in my adaptation because he has always helped me."
