The 27-year-old World Cup winner has been accused of failing to live up to his price-tag at Emirates Stadium, despite helping the Gunners win back-to-back FA Cups during his first two seasons at the club.
However, these statistics, put together by Sky Sports in the wake of Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday night, underline just how good Ozil has been at creating goals for his team-mates in recent seasons.
The playmaker is second only to Lionel Messi in the total number of assists in Europe’s top five leagues since August 2008, with 93 to his name.
Ozil added another assist to his tally for the season when he set up Olivier Giroud for Arsenal’s opener against Everton to notch up his seventh for the current campaign in the English top flight.
