Santi Cazorla wants Crystal Palace-like performance against Monaco


Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla was delighted after his side's 2-1 away win against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The 30-year-old kept his cool to give Arsenal the lead from the penalty spot in the early stages of the game with Olivier Giroud adding a second just before half-time.

And Cazorla wouldn't mind more of the same when the Gunners host Monaco in next week's Champions League game at the Emirates.

"It was a very good three points for us," Cazorla told the club's official website.

"It was a difficult game on a very difficult pitch. The team fought together and we need to play the same in the next game.

"In these games it's always very important to focus, because there are a lot of long balls, free-kicks and set-pieces.

"We only had problems [with that] in the last two or three minutes but the team today defended very well."

The Spaniard was also full of praise for team-mate Olivier Giroud who scored his 11th goal of the season on Saturday.

"He's very important for us in these games," he said.

"We sometimes need to play long balls [and] he can keep the ball and [draw] fouls, and he's a good header of the ball.

"He's in a good moment and I hope he'll continue to play the same way."
