At the minute the tactics of Arsenal are pretty clear; get the ball to Mesut Ozil. Our creative genius is absolutely on fire this season and is proving all those pundits wrong that thought that he was not cut out for the Premier League.
Having just set an all time Premier League record of providing an assist in seven consecutive EPL games, the Germany international was once again at the heart of things for the Gunners in the Champions League. He opened the scoring against Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night with a well taken goal that showed his skill and growing composure in front of goal while his lung bursting run into the box showed the desire that has also become a key part of his game.
That meants that Ozil had contributed directly to nine goals in our last 11 games but we did not need the stats to know that he is now a vital cog in the engine that is Arsenal. But is he really better than the club legend Dennis Bergkamp, as Metro has reported some Gooners have claimed?
Well in a word no, at least not yet. Ozil may have awesome technical ability, an amazing eye for a pass and is starting to find the net on a much more regular basis but this is Bergkamp we are talking about. Until Ozil has kept his current form and influence up for a lot longer then we really cannot start saying he is better than the Dutch master.
But if Ozil does keep performing as he is, will Arsenal have a new candidate for best ever Gunner?
