Arsenal boss Wenger: Run of goals will have Cazorla flying

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects Santi Cazorla to return to his very best now that he's amongst the goals.

Cazorla celebrated his 30th birthday last weekend with a brace in Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle to follow on from his successful spot-kick in the Gunners' defeat at Stoke in their previous Premier League outing.

"Santi had run after a goal for a long time," Wenger said.

"He scored a penalty at Stoke and then two on Saturday. He didn't score for a long time and it had a heavy weight on his confidence. On Saturday he scored two good goals."
