Neither of them are new signings for Arsenal and both have had plenty of good moments for the Gunners in previous seasons, but it is starting to look like this current campaign will be the best ever in an Arsenal shirt for two of the current Gunners, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott.
And maybe it is no coincidence, because they appear to be tailor made for each other and are certainly helping each other shine on the pitch. Ever since the German midfield star became the record Arsenal transfer when signing from Real Madrid a couple of years ago, people have suggested that he needs a striker with better pace and movement than Olivier Giroud to really get the best out of him.
Unfortunately for us and the England international, Walcott has been out of action due to injury for most of Ozil´s time as a Gunner, but now he is fully fit again and Arsene Wenger is giving him plenty of chances to show what he can do with Ozil´s undoubted creative ability.
The answer is, quite a bit. Metro have this week published a stunning stat about the two, showing that in the 1,495 minutes they have both been on the pitch for Arsenal, Walcott and Ozil have contributed directly to an incredible 51 goals.
That means that it has taken on average less than half an hour for one, the other or both to score or set up a goal when playing together. And they are still developing their understanding so we can safely assume that this new Arsenal dream team will just keep getting better as long as they both stay fit. Is that the only thing that will stop Ozil and Walcott leading Arsenal to the Premier League title this season?
