Does Ozil’s Germany form suggest Arsenal assists are coming?

Last night the Arsenal and Germany play maker may not have added to the terrific tally of 35 international assists that he reached after setting up Thomas Muller to score against Czech Republic on Saturday, which is a record in the current German side, but he did play a big part in both goals as Joachim Low’s team cruised to victory over a dogged Northern Ireland.

The Arsenal midfield star will not get any statistical credit for this, except maybe in the key passes sector, but his two balls set up the opportunities for both goals. The first was a slide rule pass into Thomas Muller that spilt the defence and was typical of the creative ability and vision of the Gunner. Muller then fed the ball onto Draxler in space to finish.

The second came from an outswinging Ozil corner that Hummels headed on for Khedira to nod in, so even though Ozil did not claim an assist his contribution was invaluable and suggests that even though he has not got a Premier League assist so far this season, the first of many will not be far away.

And with Low giving him the second half off, which may arguably be the reason the Germans did not add to the score in the second half, he should be fresh for the EPL match on Saturday. Be afraid Swansea, be very afraid…

      We need to take them seriously. Remember what they did to us last season.

    the opposition are alllllllllllllllways there but you have to earn the right to win, Swansea won’t want to lose and will give us a game though I do think we will eventually get a win, hope so anyway.
