Mesut Ozil has been included in Arsenal’s starting line-up for todays clash with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners know they have no room for errors as they look to remain in the title race. The Gunners find themselves behind both Tottenham and Leicester City going into the final stretch.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has set Ozil a target of 15 goals this season. Ozil has a total of eight goals this season meaning he is seven short of his managers target.

Ozil may not have the greatest goal rate but he does have the highest assist record in the league having setup up 19 goals this season.

The 27-year-old has also created the highest number of chances in the league (119) but Arsenal have scored the fewest goals in the top four.
