People have questioned whether Arsenal are lacking in character, leadership and mental strength. You can't really blame them, I suppose, after Chelsea inflicted a third heavy Premier League defeat on the Gunners. But Paul Scholes' ill-informed attack was shown to be as bad as his punditry skills by the fight that Arsenal showed today.

Big things are expected of Mesut Ozil at Arsenal. Not only does the German midfielder come with a big reputation, but his transfer fee has nearly trebled the previous transfer record of the Gunners.

Arsenal captain on Barcelona’s transfer list- Lucky he’s injured

It seems strange to be glad about an Arsenal player having an injury, but that is the situation I find myself in. Actually, the same was true last year when Kieran Gibbs got injured, luckily enough just before the January window closed. That meant that Arsene Wenger rushed through the transfer of Nacho Monreal from Malaga, meaning that we never had to see that grinning buffoon Andre Santos in an Arsenal shirt anymore.

It is the thing that has caused the most anger and disappointment to the Arsenal fans in recent years, but we believed those days were over. The Gooners have sort of understood that the club were not spending money in the transfer market, while the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City were throwing cash around like confetti at a wedding, but the sale of our best players, especially to our direct Premier League rivals has really hurt us.

Santi Cazorla has had a fantastic start to his career at Arsenal, scoring 11 Premier League goals and providing eight assists. The Spanish international can play anywhere across the midfield and has an eye for goal. For Spain, he has played with the likes of Andres Iniesta, Xavi, David Silva and Fabregas, so when a player really impresses him you know they must be something special.

Why Cazorla has become so important to Arsenal

Santi Cazorla fits into the Arsenal way of playing like a hand in a glove, and has become a vital and integral part of the Gunners. The Spaniard has played in every single Premier league game this season, starting all but one of them. He also started all the Champions league games except the final one where Arsene Wenger rested a lot of players.

Mala suerte. Si al hincha de Boca le preguntan que siente en este momento, es que tiene mala suerte. De otra forma sería imposible explicar este empate 1 a 1, que fue injusto cuando se analiza lo que sucedió en el campo. Atlético Rafaela tuvo una leve superioridad durante los primeros 45, pero la supremacía de Boca sobre su rival durante el epílogo fue mucho más amplia, y aún así no pudo llevarse los tres puntos.
