Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has been named PFA Player of the Month for the second month in a row after helping the Gunners win three of their four matches in January.

The Spaniard, 30, had a goal and an assist as Arsenal managed to beat Hull and Stoke at home and record a fantastic 2-0 win away at Manchester City.

Cazorla was the best player on the pitch at the Etihad, scoring one and creating one as Arsene Wenger's team won 2-0.

Their only blemish in January came against Southampton on New Year's day when Wojciech Szczesny made two errors in a 2-0 defeat.

Cazorla continued his fine form last weekend at home to Aston Villa, scoring one and providing two more as Arsenal thrashed the visitors 5-0 on 1 February.

Arsenal are now fifth in the Premier League but travel to White Hart Lane for the north London derby against rivals Tottenham on Saturday.
