Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is delighted with his goalscoring record this season.

Cazorla has chalked up 11 goals for the Gunners, including a hat-trick in the 5-2 league win at Reading before Christmas.

"It's an aspect of my game I've always tried to improve," said Cazorla told "Last season at Malaga I hit nine and my target was to go beyond that.

"I think a figure of 11 goals this season is good for a midfielder, but I think I can score more and improve in that facet of the game.

"Everything influences it (the improvement in front of goal). You have to try and improve as an individual and, ultimately, if you're better, the team makes you better too.

"It all works in tandem and you need the two to come together, the individual and the collective."
