Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla struggled against Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby last weekend.

The Spain international started the Premier League encounter at the Emirates Stadium and was expected to play a key role for the Gunners.

However, the 30-year-old former Malaga star was taken off at the end of the first half as he severely underperformed.

Cazorla had a pass accuracy of 85%, attempted one dribble, had a pass accuracy of 33%, and made two clearances.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger later revealed, as quoted by Sky Sports, that the former Villarreal midfielder was suffering from dizziness during the game.

Cazorla seems to be back to his normal self and has joined up with the Spain squad for upcoming friendly games against England and Belgium.

The Spaniard, who moved to Arsenal from Malaga in the summer of 2012, was training on Thursday, and he seemed quite happy and upbeat (see photos above and below).
