Arsenal team news Chelsea team news

Mesut Ozil has stated that his teams performance is more important than the number of goals he has created this season.

The 27-year-old has provided 12 assists in 24 games for Arsenal this season and has found the back of the net on four occasions.

“This season has been really good with the number of assists I have, but the most important thing is that we play well as a team and we have to try to stay at the top.” Ozil was quoted as saying by ESPN.

Ozil played a staring role in Arsenal’s victory over Sunderland in the Premier League last weekend. The Germany international received a rating of 8.5 from WhoScored making him the man of the match. Ozil made five key passes and took 122 touches on the ball during the game.

Arsenal have 30 points after 15 games and take on Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League next week.

The north London based side side need to beat the Greek Super League side by at least two goals in order to qualify.
