Mesut Ozil can do no wrong at the moment.
The Arsenal playmaker is making Premier League history for assists and getting on the scoresheet himself, finally showing the form that Gooners were dying to see from the former Real Madrid star.
And he had the Emirates Stadium purring again during yesterday’s 3-1 victory over Sunderland with this outrageous flick which made a fool of on-loan Tottenham Hotspur full-back DeAndre Yedlin.
Even attempting something that difficult inside his own half – that ball from Mathieu Flamini was coming at pace and at a tricky height – highlights the confidence that the German is playing with.
And understandably so. Ozil is fresh off setting a Premier League record for supplying goals in seven successive games, and found the net himself in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Norwich City.
He took his top-flight assist tally to the season for 12 by providing Joel Campbell with Arsenal’s opener against the Black Cats. Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey goals secured three hard-earned points.
The World Cup winner has got to be an early favourite for the PFA Player of the Year award.
