I thought that the Arsenal and Germany international play maker Mesut Ozil had bagged himself another couple of assists this week, as our midfield maestro inspired the Gunners to another key victory away to Swansea City. Apparently not though, as his EPL assists have only gone up by one, according to the stats website Squawka.com.
That still puts Ozil on nine for the season so far though, and that is three more than the next best player David Silva. Looking at the stats in more detail, however, makes you realise just how influential the German has been for the Gunners.
Also involved in the chart of the best creative players are things like passing accuracy, number of completed passes and key passes. In that final category, Ozil has 40 to his name and if that does not float your boat, think about the fact that Silva has just 10.
Ozil´s passing accuracy of 89 percent is also better than any other player in the top 22. The number 23 ranked player has 92 percent but before you start to worry, let me tell you that the name of this player is Santi Cazorla and the Spaniard’s overall score of 881 is by far the best in the chart. No prizes for guessing that Ozil’s score of 600 is second and so it is easy to see why Arsenal are doing so well.
So are therse two Gunners the key to Arsenal winning the title?
