The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is currently way ahead of the chasing pack when it comes to which player will provide the most Premier League assists this season. In fact the German attacking midfielder is on course to break the long standing EPL record of 20 set by our very own Thierry Henry 13 years ago.
So after two draws in a row for Arsenal, we failed to get that elusive win over Chelsea that would have seen Arsenal come through a tough month of fixtures on top of the Premier League. And what is worse, we even failed to get the point that would have taken us back above Man City after they dropped points away to West Ham.
There have been enough articles about the effect that Petr Cech has had on the Arsenal team since his arrival from Chelsea, and he could be the main reason that the Gunners are favourites to beat his old team this afternoon. But people can’t stop talking about him, and the latest praise comes from our very own Thierry Henry, who believes that Cech can be the main reason that Arsenal can win the title.
In the week after one of the greatest players ever to grace the pitch for Arsenal Football Club lost one of his records in English football, and to a player from the old enemy Manchester United to boot, it is good to hear that another Arsenal star is on target to equal the record of another of the Red Devils.
Arsenal have managed to get to the top of the League table at the halfway point in the campaign and it seems that Thierry Henry has finally become convinced that the Gunners really can win the title with Olivier Giroud as their main striker, after famously stating during the summer that it was impossible. Most of Giroud’s strikes have come from assists by the fabulous Mesut Ozil, and Henry thinks that this partnership is now the crucial factor for Arsenal’s season.
