With Arsenal's triumph in Saturday's FA Cup final there was to be no shortage of celebrations from the players, the manager and the fans as they blew away Aston Villa in one of history's most one-sided finals.

Arsenal completely dominated the whole game with standout performances from Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Per Mertesacker.

However, the one player who was by far the best on the pitch was Arsenal's Santi Cazorla. The little Spaniard was a magician in the centre of the park for the Arsenal team.

He controlled and dictated the entire match with his passing and spatial awareness and ultimately was awarded the Man of the Match for his performance.

Cazorla, now 30-years-old, is at a time in his career when Arsene Wenger 12-moth contract policy comes into play. Wenger must do everything in his power to keep Cazorla at the club for as long as possible.

The form he has shown all season has been spectacular and has largely been Arsenal's most consistent player.

Wenger's policy

In the past Wenger's policy of offering only one-year deals to players aged 30 and over has been evident this season with Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta both believed to have agreed deals.

With consecutive FA Cups, the Gunners will now be aiming to claim the Premier League title next season and for that they most certainly will need all the experience they can get.

Wenger has always rated Cazorla and talked about how he is a perfect example of a player who can use both feet, and that he should be a role model for young players to base their game on.

The Frenchman has been able to get the best out of the maestro and Cazorla's stock has risen considerably since his move from Malaga to Arsenal in 2012.

Stock rising

A fan favourite and one of the most popular players in the Arsenal dressing room, Cazorla is a joy for any Arsenal fan to support and watch.

Cazorla has taken on the role as central midfielder perfectly this season and has arguably been playing the best football of his career.

He is a perfect example of the player Wenger needs to break his one-year policy for when talks open over a new deal.

For Arsenal to mount a serious title charge next season arguably the team which started against Aston Villa in Saturday's cup final must not be tampered with, but built on and used as the foundation for a title push.

Cazorla is one of the first names on the team sheet and will be absolutely key for the Gunners come next season.
