Arsenal's Nacho Monreal: 'Playing in Premier League has improved my game'

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal says that the physical aspects of his game have improved by playing in the Premier League.

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has claimed that playing in the Premier League has improved the physical aspect of his game.

The Spaniard has become a regular member of the first-team squad after moving to the Emirates from Malaga in 2013.

"I've always said that it's a different type of football here," Monreal told Arsenal Player. "In Spain there is more of a focus on tactics, technique and positioning, whereas in England it is more physical.

"The fans like seeing box-to-box play and lots of direct runs, so I think on a physical level I've improved because you have to get used to English football. I've certainly got better in that regard."

Arsenal are currently sixth in the league table after two wins, one draw and a defeat.
