Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil racked up his 200th career assist during the Gunners win over Ludogorets in the UEFA Champions League.
The Germany international provided the assist for Arsenal’s first goal with a well timed cross which was headed home by Granit Xhaka. Gunners went on to record a 3-2 victory against the Bulgarian giants
Ozil racked up an impressive 19 Premier League assists last season and was just one assist of equalling the record of 20 set by Thierry Henry.

However, Ozil has also had his scoring boots on this season. The Germany international of Turkish origin scored a hat-trick against the Bulgarian outfit a fortnight ago at the Emirates and scored the winning goal for his side tonight.
Ozil now has seven goals and two assists in all competitions for the North London based outfit this season.
Arsenal fans will be hoping Ozil can continue his impressive form when they take on their bitter rivals Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend.
