Santi Cazorla: Hype around 'incredible' Jack Wilshere is justified - ESPN FC

Wilshere's return has meant that Cazorla is now being deployed out wide more and, although the Spaniard prefers to play in the centre, he says it is not an issue due to the movement Arsene Wenger allows them.

"As long as I have freedom, I don't mind. It's not a question of playing wide. It's true that for me, it's not that I don't like the wing, I don't feel as comfortable to be alone out there. I like to get involved in the middle, to get on the ball. The boss lets me do that so, in that sense, it doesn't matter whether I'm on the wing or in the centre.

"We don't have true fixed positions like that. With Jack, with me, with Abou [Diaby], we are players that play a little bit in one position at the start but then later, we can change. If Jack goes up, I stay."

The FA Cup is causing Premier League fixture changes, which will impact Arsenal, Everton, and possibly QPR. But how? The fine folks at Fantasy Football Cheat break it down.
