As Mesut Ozil grabbed two assists against Manchester City on Monday night at the Emirates, the Arsenal man moved even further clear as the Assist King of Europe.
But before the game an interesting stat surfaced on Twitter that showed the German has more assists in the Premier League than all of Manchester United or Chelsea this season.
13 – Premier League assists in 2015-16: Mesut Ozil 13 Man Utd players combined 12 Chelsea players combined 11 Influence.

Of course, his brace of assists moved him even further clear of those two sides.
As Ozil shows no signs of easing up with his assist masterclass, there’s more than one reason to hope he continues…
I sincerely hope Arsenal Twitter continues to celebrate Özil’s assists as much as every goal, just because it pisses other fans off.
