Mesut Ozil sets Premier League record with killer pass in Arsenal v Tottenham

Mesut Ozil has set a brand new Premier League record on his way to helping Arsenal draw 1-1 with Tottenham

Mesut Ozil has become the first player in Premier League history to assist goals in six consecutive games after setting up Kieran Gibbs’ equaliser in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.

The Germany playmaker now has 11 assists to his name in the top flight and never before has a player set up goals for his team-mates in six successive games.

Harry Kane gave Tottenham the lead at Emirates Stadium when he coolly slotted past Petr Cech in the 32nd minute in north London.

However, Ozil’s superb lofted pass fed substitute Kibbs, who bundled the ball past Hugo Lloris to earn Arsenal a point from the thrilling derby clash.

The result left Arsenal second in the Premier League table and level on points with leaders Manchester City, who drew 0-0 at Aston Villa earlier on Sunday.

Arsenal’s next game is a trip to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League after the international break on 21 November.
