Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes summer signing Santi Cazorla's "humble" character has helped him to settle at the club so quickly.
Cazorla has made an impressive start to the season following his £15million summer move from Malaga, and Wenger has been keen to praise the Spain international.
"Cazorla has gained the respect of everybody very quickly. Cazorla is humble, he loves the game and that is what you want from every football player," Wenger said.
"They talk on the pitch, don't need to speak too much, just go on the pitch and show what you can do. That is what he does.
"He loves the game, loves to play with his partners and that is the best way to gain respect from everybody."
Wenger has also been impressed by strikers Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, who also joined the Gunners this summer.
"They are used to European football much more than the Premier League," he added.
"The Premier League is a bit more special thanks to the rhythm of the games, the pace, the intensity of the commitment, intensity of every challenge," he said.
"Sometimes [it is difficult] to adapt to that, but the way we play is a very continental style, so it gives them a good chance to adapt very quickly.
"Players like Cazorla have adapted in a speedy way, the game goes through them.
"Sometimes it is easy in the middle of the park, sometimes it is easy in the centre of the pitch to adapt because the game goes more through you."
