Santi Cazorla has been phenomenal at times this season, and has become hugely important to the success of the team in recent weeks.
His spot-kicking has been particularly vital, and these stats show just how clinical he has been from 12 yards, courtesy of the Metro.

The Spaniard has scored six penalties in the Premier League this season – more than any other player in the English top flight.
Cazorla is even outscoring entire clubs, with Manchester City the only side to have matched his six so far.

Thierry Henry currently holds the record for most penalties scored in a Premier League season, but Cazorla is just one behind the King’s record of seven.
The 30-year-old could have been level with Henry, had Alexis Sanchez not taken a spot-kick against QPR that he saw saved by Rob Green.
Cazorla is unlikely to be thinking in terms of records at this point, with the success of the team naturally far more important.
It would be nice to see him rewarded for his fine form this season however, and a record breaking campaign would go some way to doing that.
