Cazorla slips as he takes a penalty against West Brom.

Santi Cazorla certainly hasn’t been the luckiest Arsenal player so far this season but, rather appropriately because of his name, he might well be on Santa’s naughty list this Christmas.

The Spaniard was sent off in his side’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in September, slipped and missed a penalty in the defeat to West Brom in November, and has failed to score from 23 shots so far this term.

His misery was compounded when he suffered a knee injury against Norwich last month, which is set to keep him out of action for around four months. Maybe Father Christmas should go a bit easy on him…
