Arsenal star created highest number of chances since Premier League records began
Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-0 at the Emirates to keep their dream of Champions League football alive.
Germany international Mesut Ozil put on an impressive display setting up Alexis Sanchez with the opening goal.
Ozil could have had a few more assists had his teammates been less profligate.
The 28-year-old actually created off an astonishing 12 goal goal scoring opportunities which is the highest number since Premier League records began.

Ozil has a total of 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions for the Gunners this season.
The playmaker had also had a 90 pass accuracy, completing the most passes in the attacking third (53/60) and won three out of three take-ons.
The Arsenal star has been criticised at stages over the campaign but he has received rave reviews since head coach Arsene Wenger switched formation to a 3-5-2.
The Gunners have won six out of the last seven games in which Wenger has fielded his new 3-5-2 setup.
