Mesut Ozil has been criticised for a lack of effort by the pundits such as Paul Scholes in recent months.
However, stats published by FIFA show that the 27-year-old is actually one of the most active footballers in the Premier League.
The EA Sports Player Performance Index states that Ozil covers a greater distance per 90 minutes played than a number of the Premier League’s biggest names.
Ozil covers more distance than Chelsea midfielders Ramires and Willian as well as Alexis Sanchez.
The Germany international joined Arsenal on a record £42.5 million transfer from Real Madrid in 2013 and Sanchez joined on a big money move from Barcelona the following season.
The Gunners are currently second in the league after beating Manchester United 3-0 in their last game at the Emirates. Arsenal are just two points off leaders Manchester City.
The North London based club take on Watford next away from home in the league.
