Not sure if he is trolling or if this is true, Ozil’s stat is impressive regardless.
Mesut Ozil created 12 chances tonight.
Man Utd have created 13 in the Premier League in May.

There were no criticisms of Ozil on the night.
Thought Ozil & Xhaka were superb tonight. Ozil with most chances ever created in a @premierleague game whilst Xhaka is starting to settle.

De Bruyne: 48 Games 7 Goals 19 Assists
Ozil : 42 Games 12 Goals 13 Assists
Yet one of them is having a terrible season

Ozil was absolutely awesome tonight. Again. To even call him a flop is beyond a footballing joke. On the ball, there is no one better in EPL

Not sure where we’d be as a club if we lost Sanchez and Ozil.

Ozil was actually unreal mate today. Never seen a man make as many ludicrous through balls as today, beautiful football.

Nobody was able to accuse him of not showing enough fight either, he lashed out at Oviedo.

Alexis nods it it in, Ozil waves for the team to go back and chase more goals. Good to see.

There is always one!
Mesut Ozil disappeared for 12 games to create 12 chances in a single game. Elite. Mesut Ozil FC.
