Mesut Ozil’s goal against Leicester on Monday night made him the highest scoring German in Premier League history, moving him past both Uwe Rosler and Jurgen Klinsmann.

Mesut Ozil’s strike to make it 1-1 at the Emirates and start Arsenal’s magnificent comeback was his 30th in the Premier League with the two previous high-scoring Germans both on 29.

Of course, Ozil has taken a lot longer to score 30 than those other two, but he has been more than a little occupied by assisting his teammates.
