Stats which prove Cazorla is playing better than Mata and Silva
Controversial talkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham said in his Daily Mail column this week that Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla ‘cannot touch’ fellow Spanish midfielders’ Juan Mata or David Silva.
However, statistics from the Premier League season so far suggest summer signing Cazorla is ahead of both his compatriots in terms of passing accuracy, goals and average passes.
Cazorla, who joined the Gunners’ for around £16 million from Malaga in August, already has an impressive 88.3 per cent passing success rate in his first season in English football.
“Santi Cazorla is good, but over the course of a season he’s not quite David Silva, or Juan Mata”, claimed outspoken Durham.
