[video] Wenger & Allardyce Reflect On The Game

Nothing short of an emphatic win for Arsenal who faced a West Ham squad that was supposedly bolstered by the return of Andy Carroll.

Oliver Giroud scored his first Premier League goal for the Gunners who came from behind to secure a memorable victory. Theo Walcott came off the bench to score and Santi Cazorla lashed home a magnificent 20-yard strike to seal the deal.

The Gunners boss has praised Cazorla’s talents saying that “he makes everyone around him play better.”

He has compared the midfielder to Glenn Hoddle because “you could not say if he was left or right footed. And Santi Cazorla is similar on that front. I don’t remember anyone else I have worked with who was two-footed as much as those two.”

Although Wenger believes that it’s too early to say whether Cazorla will have the same impact as Cesc Fabregas did on the club, he has happy with the Spaniard’s start to life in the Premier League.

“Santi is right footed but when you watch him play you don’t know. It shows how important that is in the midfield,” Wenger added.
