Arsenal star tops Premier League assists chart

Arsenal’s star playmaker Mesut Ozil has created more goals than any other Premier League player in 2015/16.

The Germany international provided 19 assists for his teammates this season.

However, despite finishing top of the assists table, Ozil missed the chance to set a new Premier League record. Ozil had racked up 16 assists by the end of December but has only managed to add three assists to his tally since then.

The former Real Madrid man was just one assist short of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
