Mesut Ozil produced another standout performance as Arsenal were 3-0 winners against Dinamo Zagreb at The Emirates on Tuesday night.

Ozil was instrumental in sealing three points in a must-win game for the north London side after he broke the deadlock with a close-range header in the 29th minute.

Chile international Alexis Sanchez secured the victory with two goals in the 33rd and 69th minute, but Ozil was named man-of-the-match after he continued his impressive run of form.

And OptaJoe’s stat (below) highlights how the Germany international is pulling the strings for Arsene Wenger’s side in recent months.

The Gunners can qualify for the Champions League knockout phase if Arsene Wenger’s side beat Oympiacos in their final group game in Greece on December 9.

Ozil has scored one goal and has made 11 assists in 12 Premier League games this term.

The club-record signing has also netted twice in five Champions League outings.
