Nacho Monreal credits the physical nature of the Premier League with improving his ability as a player.
"I've always said that it's a different type of football here," Monreal told Arsenal Player. "In Spain there is more of a focus on tactics, technique and positioning, whereas in England it is more physical.
"The fans like seeing box-to-box play and lots of direct runs, so I think on a physical level I've improved because you have to get used to English football. I've certainly got better in that regard."
