Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has broken the Premier League record for chances created record following the Gunners 0-0 draw with Sunderland.

The record of 134 was previously held by the former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard. The experinced midfielder, set the record for Chelsea during 2008-09, when the Blues finished third.

Ozil has now created 137 chances in a single season with three games remaining. Ozil has also provided 18 assists this season and is on course to break Thierry Henry’s record of 20. Interestingly Ozil was omitted from the PFA team of the year despite his impressive stats.

Worryingly for Arsenal, despite Ozil breaking records in terms of chances created, the North London based side have the lowest goal record in the top four.

The Gunners payed out a 0-0 draw with Sunderland earlier today leaving them level on points with the Manchester City. Arsenal once again failed to capitilise on chances created by Ozil as they slip behind the City Blues in the Premier League.
