Cazorla recorded four goals and eight assists in 31 appearances for Arsenal during the 2013-2014 Premier League season.

Cazorla's statistical output dipped from the 12 goals and 11 assists he notched as a Premiership debutant last season, but the Spaniard maintained a strong creative influence in attack nonetheless. Following the addition of central midfielder Mesut Ozil, Cazorla was mostly deployed as a winger, which limited his influence to some extent. However, Cazorla still ranked second on the Gunners with 73 shots attempts this season, showing his eye for goal. He also tied for second-place on the team in assists. While offseason additions and the return of injured players could impact his playing time slightly next season, Cazorla will likely remain a threatening fantasy option.
