Santi Cazorla was involved in a Q&A session with Arsenal’s official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon and he revealed his all-time 5-a-side team.

But which players make the cut?

There’s no room for any of Cazorla’s current Arsenal teammates - sorry Mesut, Alexis and Petr - but there is one Gunners’ legend in the line-up. However, it’s not Thierry Henry. (Scroll down to see Cazorla’s dream 5-a-side team).

So, there you have it: Cazorla’s dream 5-a-side line-up. It might not contain any defensive players - barring the goalkeeper, Casillas - but not doubt it’d score a lot of goals. Cazorla, presumably, had to settle for a place on his own imaginary bench.

Cazorla answers more questions

Cazorla was also asked which current Arsenal player is most likely to become a manager in the future - and there are no prizes for guessing who he picked.

"It's Mikel Arteta,” the Spanish playmaker replied. “He definitely has the quality to become a manager in the future."

Cazorla revealed what he enjoys doing when he has a day off.

“Enjoy it with my family, with the kids, go to dinner sometimes,” he replied. Pretty standard stuff, as you can see.

He also admitted that having his own chant has been the best moment of his career.

"Having my own song is the best moment in my career,” the 31-year-old commented. “I can only say thank you so much."

And finally, he was asked how many times a day he laughs. Rarely do you ever see Cazorla without a big smile on his face.

"I don't know! A lot of times. It's very important and I try to laugh every day."
