Ozil sets Premier League record

Mesut Ozil sets Premier League record despite recent poor form

April 24, 2016 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
Mesut Ozil may be waiting to break Thierry Henry’s record of assists, but the German still has something to be proud of, in the meantime.

The Arsenal playmaker now has the highest number of chances created in Premier League history. During Arsenal’s clash with Sunderland on Saturday, the former Real Madrid man created three chances in the first half, but his teammates up front failed to convert them into goals.

Despite the setback, Ozil has now created 135 chances this season, 33, more than West Ham’s Dimitri Payet, who boasts of 102 chances created, and Spurs’ Christian Eriksen, who has 105 chances created to his name.

Here is an overview of the players with the most chances created this season, according to Opta:

Mesut Ozil (Arsenal): 135

Christian Eriksen (Spurs): 105

Dimitri Payet (West Ham): 102

Willian (Chelsea): 75

Kevin De Bruyne (Man City): 71

However, it should be noted that these statistics were recorded since the 2003/04 season when Opta Sports data company began collecting data from Premier League games.

Meanwhile, Arsenal secured a goalless draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, a result that has left Wenger's men fighting for the top four spot rather than the league title.
