Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn't overly concerned after Santi Cazorla didn't see action for Spain this week.

Cazorla travelled to Panama with Spain - though, to Wenger's relief, the midfielder did not feature as the world champions ran out 5-1 winners.

He told Arsenal Player: “I believe he didn’t need games. He was overloaded with games so on that front I was happy that he got a little breather.

“It is not a complete breather because 20 hours travelling is of course not what we want. It’s the advantage and the disadvantage of being called up in a squad. At least he didn’t get injured and hopefully will recover before Saturday.”
