Ian Wright has taken to Twitter to applaud Mesut Ozil after the Arsenal midfielder surpassed Eric Cantona’s record of Premier League assists.

The £42.5m club-record signing teed up Olivier Giroud for the north London side’s opener in a 2-1 victory over Everton at The Emirates on Saturday evening.

Arsenal star Ozil has now made 21 assists in 57 Premier League games, which means the World Cup winner creates a goal every 2.71 games.

The Germany international’s ratio narrowly beats Manchester United legend Eric Cantona (2.79) and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas (2.88).

And Gunners legend Wright appeared to endorse Ozil’s impressive feat with a retweet on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Ozil has scored two goals and has made eight assists in 12 games in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s men this term.

The Germany playmaker moved to Arsenal in a club-record £42.5m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in 2013.
