Mesut Özil played a staring role in Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Watford in the Premier League earlier today.
The 27-year-old provided two assists on the night and was rated as the man of the match by whoscored.
Özil set up Alexis Sanchez’s opener and Olivier Giroud’s goal in the 68th minute. The Germany international was taken off in place of Arteta in the 81st minute.
Arsenal ended up winning the game and moving back into second place overtaking Manchester United who temporarily moved in second place following their 3-0 win over Everton.
The Gunners have now won back-to-back games in the league and take on Bayern Munich next in the Champions League.
Özil now has six assists in the Premier League this season – more than any other player in the league.
The World Cup winner has a total of 27 assists for the Gunners since joining on a record breaking £42.5 million transfer from Real Madrid back in 2013.
Özil had a phenomenal assist record at Real with 81 assists in 159 games for the Galacticos.
