Santi Cazorla spent six years in North London and in 180 appearances contributed 29 goals and 46 assists for the club, and provided fans with some everlasting memories. 

That FA Cup Final free kick, May 2014

It was Arsenal's first chance to win a trophy since 2011, a game they lost 2-1 to Birmingham.

It would be the first trophy since the Invincible Premier League season in 2004. The game didn't get off to the best of starts for Arsenal, who found themselves 2-0 down to Hull City after only eight minutes. 

It was Cazorla who started the comeback for the side, with a thunderous free kick after 17 minutes, a goal which Arsenal fans are extremely grateful for and savour, as it led to their first trophy in 10 years.

The Gunners went on to win the final 3-2, with Cazorla providing the crucial delivery for the equaliser. 

Goal and assist in the North London Derby, November 2012

Santi's first taste of a North London Derby was extremely sweet, as the magician netted a goal and assist in the derby. 

The game started poorly for the Gunners, as former striker Emmanuel Adebayor opened the scoring for Tottenham inside 10 minutes. 

The Togolese striker, was then sent off for a shocking challenge on Cazorla, reducing his side to ten men, something that Cazorla and his teammates exploited. 

The little Spaniard provided a spectacular assist for Olivier Giroud, getting up following being fouled, and making a sprint to the byline and driving a low cross straight to Giroud, who spun two defenders and shoot low past Hugo Lloris. 

Cazorla netted Arsenal's fourth early in the second half, catching Spurs short on the wing, and netted from close range.

Hat-trick vs Reading: December 2012

One of many games he dominated, Cazorla's first hat-trick in English football came away at the Madejski Stadium in a 5-2 victory. 

Arsenal took a deserved lead after 15 minutes through Lukas Podolski, and after the opener the tricky Spanish midfielder took control.

An atypical diving header gave the Gunners a 2-0 lead, and two minutes later he had another, he swivelled from inside the box and struck an effort into the bottom left to make it three. 

His hat-trick was completed on the hour mark, striking home from close range, and also provided the opportunity for Theo Walcott to make it five, as Cazorla's long range shot was parried by the Reading goalkeeper into the path of the English forward, to end any chance of a home comeback.
