MesutOzil continues to gather the spotlight of the media as the German midfielder is one of the main driving forces behind Arsenal’s rise to the top of the Premier League. This was especially evident during Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City. Ozil provided the assists for both of the goals that his teammates scored.
The German player is going through such an impressive season that he is on course of breaking the current Premier League assist record which is being held by Thierry Henry.
Henry is the current record holder for most assists in a single season after providing 20 assists back when he was performing for Arsenal but if MesutOzil continues his form then a new record will be set.
There still are more than 20 games left in this season of the Premier League which is plenty of time for MesutOzil to mark his name in the history books of the English League.
Arsene Wenger took the chance to praise the work that his £42.4 million signing has been making in this season and the French manager labeled Ozil as an: ‘’absolutely unbelievable player’’
“I think he has become an absolutely unbelievable player. Ozil is the main provider in our team and in the league. He has 13 assists in the league. Players who can make you score are very difficult to find and have something special on the vision front and on the technical quality.
“That is what Mesut is about. But he is also about, and people forget this many times, in his way an exceptional fighter. He runs much more and covers the distances during the game.He has added runs into the box now’’ Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger said as he praised MesutOzil.
Arsenal has not won the Premier League since the season of 2003-04; this was over 10 years ago this drought might end in this season but it will hugely depend on whether or not MesutOzil continues his form, if the German midfielder slips up and can’t maintain his current form then Arsenal will have it extremely tough.
