Cazorla's corner was headed home by Olivier Giroud in the 28th minute of Arsenal's 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

The assist was Cazorla's eighth of the season, which he's coupled with seven goals in 29 total appearances. He played a little more centrally and in control of the attack due to Mesut Ozil sitting out with an illness, but he could be sent back out wide when Ozil returns after the international break.

Cazorla converted a 75th minute penalty kick and also set up two other scores during Arsenal's convincing 5-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Cazorla is currently enjoying an unmatched run of sensational form, as the skillful Spaniard has supplied six goals and four assists over his past nine Premier League appearances. Over that span, five of Cazorla's goals have come from the penalty spot, where he made hay once again Sunday. An instrumental figure in the center of Arsenal's attack, Cazorla's fantasy stock remains on the rise even despite teammate Mesut Ozil returning to action. The two like-minded players excelled while playing together Sunday, which should put fantasy owners at ease when considering both players' stock moving forward.

Cazorla picked up an assist in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Hull City in the FA Cup.

Cazorla scored from the penalty spot in the 41st minute of Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham on Sunday.

Cazorla's recent fine play continues, as he now has four goals and an assist in his last five Premier League matches. He would normally be a possibility for some rest during the condensed holiday period, but with a number of players still sidelined with injuries, he should be right back in the starting XI come New Year's Day at Southampton.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said after Friday's game against Stoke City that Cazorla is his No. 1 penalty taker while Mikel Arteta is sidelined.

Alexis Sanchez missed a penalty during the QPR match and Wenger noted after the game that Cazorla "is a nice guy and let him take it." After the miss, it's likely that Cazorla will take the next ones, as long as Arteta is not on the pitch.

Cazorla assisted on Olivier Giroud's goal during Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Cazorla has been arguably Arsenal's best player of late, as he now has three goals and four assists in his last six games in all competitions. However, he has been heavily used as well, which means he could get a break during the team's upcoming condensed fixtures, which starts with QPR on Boxing Day and then a trip to face West Ham two days later.
