Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has recorded 12 Premier League assists this season.

The 27-year-old has created the most assists in the league by an Arsenal player since Cesc Fabregas in 2009.10. However, Ozil is expected to smash the Spanish international’s record as he has racked up 12 assists before Christmas.

Ozil played a staring role in the Gunners win over Norwich providing an assist for the opening goal.

The Germany international received a rating of 8.5 from WhoScored after making five key passes and taking 122 touches on the ball during the game.

The North London based side have 30 points after 15 games and take on Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League next week.

Arsenal need to beat the Greek champions by at least two goals if they are to qualify to the next round of the competition.
