Video: Sky pundits can’t help but laugh at Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal stats

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has long been a divisive figure in his career in the Premier League, but at the end of the day you can’t help but be blown away by some of the numbers he’s notched up.

Watch below as analysts take a look at his chance creation stats on Sky Sports – and how they can’t help but laugh at his remarkable record of 737 opportunities crafted out for his team-mates…

Ozil might not score enough and might not work hard enough, but at his peak he was a master creator, with few in the world better at picking out a killer ball than the German.

Many will still argue that Mikel Arteta has made a big mistake by leaving the 32-year-old out of his squad this season.

    Despite amazing record, Özil is not even on the bench. ‘Footballing reasons?’

    Can’t believe how Arteta choose to have Willian in the Squad over Ozil
    No wonder Arsenal are where they are in the table, they’re not attractive to watch anymore

    I have for the last five years regarded Ozil as too lazy to deserve his place, so am hopeful he will go shortly now. But from his own point of view , IF he has any real pride and actually wants to continue playing football anytime soon, he needs -for his own playing benefit – to leave Arsenal now and then resume playing.
    He has known all along that he will never get picked again under Arteta. He is far from stupid and has IMO put his huge wage packet before personal playing ambition.

    I of course am not at all surprised at that, as all along I have thought him a dishonourable person who has neglected his side of the bargain when it comes to honouring his Arsenal contract, by NOT giving his best endeavours on the pitch -which means working hard and consistently so – while expecting and demanding every penny due to him under his contact. A one way only contract in his way of “working”.

    I will be thrilled and massively relieved, as a true Gooner, when he finally leaves, hopefully within days now

      Lets face it, Ozil did not hold a gun to AFC to get the contract signed. As I recall, he was persuaded. Both sides agreed to the contract.
      The only creative player in the squad has been left out with the excuse of ‘footballing reasons’ to avoid potential loss of income from China. Its a political decision to exclude him from the squad. All the team members state that Ozil is training well and shows skills far better than some of the other squad players. Informed journalists confirm this. In Arteta’s first few games as a nanager, Ozil was included in the 1st XI – then all of sudden he was was left out. This volta face is no accident – it is planned.
      There needs to be honesty here. The club owes that to the fans and supporters. The owners I suspect have major say in this abysmal treatment of players, including others like Gueduzzi, etc. I have been a supporter of AFC since 1971 and loyal. This is not Arsenal the behaviour that I expect. It is embarassing.
