Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is loving life at the Emirates Stadium and has heaped the praise on boss Arsene Wenger.

The 28-year-old joined the Gunners is a £15 million summer move from Malaga and has established himself as a key player for Arsenal this season.

Cazorla insists the transition from La Liga to the Premier League was an easy one for him to make, due to the style of play Wenger has adopted at the Emirates Stadium.

"For me it is important to go out onto the pitch and be comfortable, and that has been the case since the first game. I have always been at ease on the pitch," Cazorla said in the Arsenal matchday magazine.

"In my case too, you do not notice much difference between Arsenal and playing in Spain, because we are also a side who like to play with the ball.

"The boss has a philosophy of playing football, it is always trying to find attacking football, of having the ball and because of the characteristics of the players we have, it is what comes easiest to us."

Arsenal travel to Sunderland on Saturday and can be backed at 1.90 to pick up all three points and extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four games.

The draw is 3.60 and Sunderland are 4.50 to grab the win.

Wenger does have a few fitness concerns ahead of the tie at the Stadium of Light, including captain Thomas Vermaelen who missed the win at Stoke last time out with an ankle knock and wasn’t involved in Belgium's midweek win over Slovakia.

Fellow centre-half Laurent Koscielny picked up a calf problem during France’s loss to Germany and will be assessed before Saturday's trip to Wearside.
