Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is adamant Santi Cazorla will play again for the club this season.
Cazorla hasn’t been seen for over a year due to a series of injuries and complications in recovery.
Wenger, however, feels the Spaniard will be back after Christmas.
He said, “The first signs are positive, but still he has not played for one and a half years.
“He is not in full training yet, he needs a few games twith the reserve team. So I think if all goes well, it will be after Christmas.”
