Former Tottenham Hotspur star Micky Hazard has stated on social networking site Twitter that Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla must be fed up of facing Eric Dier and Dele Alli after the trio once again took to the same pitch last night.
While the hosts dominated possession, England frustrated them for long spells and the introduction of the Spurs duo gave the visitors fresh impetus from an attacking perspective and bite in midfield.
Writing on Twitter during the game, Hazard joked that Cazorla must be fed up of facing his fellow North London-based stars after the trio were involved in last weekend’s derby clash.

Great strike Harry, oops is Corzola looking a bit dizzy— Micky Hazard (@1MickyHazard) noviembre 13, 2015
Hazard’s comments were in relation to Arsene Wenger’s post-match explanation as to why Cazorla was brought off at half-time during the North London derby, with the Spaniard apparently suffering from illness.
It was rather apt that illness was the case as the usually dominant playmaker was utterly outshone by the young Spurs duo in a half which saw the Gunners trail by one goal to nil.
However, the former Malaga man has seemingly recovered and ironically had the last laugh in Alicante as his late goal wrapped up a comfortable 2-0 win for the hosts.
The Cazorla vs Dier and Allis saga will resume at White Hart Lane in early March in a fixture which could well see both teams sitting in the top four and well-placed to achieve their season goals.
