Is Mesut Özil in the best form of his Arsenal career?
The German provided two assists as Arsenal won 3-0 against Watford on Saturday, and was heavily involved in much of the Gunners attacking play. It shouldn’t come as a surprise – no player in Europe’s top leagues has created more chances than Özil so far this season.
For the third Premier League game running, Alexis Sánchez had a goal laid on by Özil before the German teed up Olivier Giroud to double Arsenal’s lead. Aaron Ramsey added a third goal, but could have already been on the scoresheet thanks to Mesut’s vision.
His passing is crisp, he is battling for the ball and he is tearing teams apart. Arsenal look great right now, and Mesut Özil is a massive part of that.
