Arsenal news Santi Cazorla

Arsenal fans may be wondering why they haven’t seen a stream of ‘Mesut Ozil assist memes’ on the internet this season. The answer is pretty simple, the Germany international is yet to register a single assist for his teammates this season.


This stat is in stark contrast to last term where he racked up an incredible 19 assists in the Premier League. In fact, Ozil was just one assist of equalling the Premier League record set by Thierry Henry, which stands at 120.

Furthermore, the former Real Madrid man has managed just one assist in his last 16 games for Arsenal.

However, Arsenal fans won’t worry too much while their team is in such good form. The Gunners have recorded five wins in a row and are unbeaten in their last nine games in all competitions.

Arsenal take on Swansea City in their next Premier League fixture on October 15. The Swans recently appointed the former USA national team head coach Bob Bradly as their manager.
