Ominous numbers prove Mesut Ozil is the Premier League’s greatest ever setter-upper

Posted by

We’ve known for a long time that Mesut Ozil is the king of assists.

But he does not yet hold the Premier League record to prove it.

He will soon, though.

Ozil has made 17 Prem assists this season, after setting up Danny Welbeck for a dramatic winner in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Leicester City.

The current Prem record belongs to former Gunners star Thierry Henry, who assisted 20 goals in the 2002-2003 season.

Ozil needs just four more in the 12 remaining fixtures to break that record.

He will, right?

The German superstar is currently just below two Chelsea midfielders, as well as Henry.
