Santi Cazorla has been Arsenal’s talisman over the past few months.
Arsenal star Santi Cazorla took to Twitter to express his excitement regarding the upcoming match against Man United on Monday night in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The Gunners are looking to defend their trophy and were handed the hardest possible draw, pitting them against a Man United side they cannot seem to defeat.
With the tie being at Old Trafford, Man United become overwhelming favourites as Arsene Wenger hasn’t been victorious at the Theatre of Dreams since September 2006, almost a decade ago.
However, there hasn’t been a better time for the Frenchman to overcome that jinx with his team in full-form – Monaco defeat apart – and the opponents ambling towards fortunate wins.
The situation seems identical to when the two teams met at the Emirates Stadium in November with Louis van Gaal’s side somehow leaving north London with all three points.
Cazorla and co will certainly be looking to banish history and claim a vital scalp over their rivals.
