Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has a reputation for being the most naturally two-footed player at the club if not the Premier League, on the evidence of a brilliant video posted online by Nacho Monreal yesterday that view is definitely justified.
Cazorla kept his reflexes sharp after training with an indoor game of two-touch against Monreal, a little variation on head-tennis that you may be more familiar with.
Monreal more than holds his own for a lengthy rally, but in truth there was only every going to be one winner.
'Impossible' to beat Cazorla
Cazorla is a class act and this video may even enhance his opinion among Arsenal fans, if that was possible following his return to top form over the last three months.
A man standing at no more than 5'6'' at a very generous estimate has to have fantastic ball control to make it at the highest level, but even so Cazorla's technical ability is a joy to watch.

Who could beat Cazorla at two-touch?
Monreal may have to draft in a ringer to put Cazorla in his place on the evidence of his terrific Tweet, although it would be very interesting to see how Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez fare against the little Spaniard in his favourite format.
Cazorla's ability with both feet should serve as a lesson to aspiring youngsters, work diligently on improving your weaker foot and you will reap the rewards.
The 30-year-old has arguably been Arsenal's most consistent player so far this season, playing with the kind of authority that makes him captain material in an unconventional sense plus a clear fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium.
