Mesut Ozil’s 16th assist of the season against AFC Bournemouth means the German is just four short of equalling the Premier League record (20) set by Gunners legend Thierry Henry.

Star striker Olivier Giroud was a close second; but it is midfield maestro Mesut Ozil who goes home with Arsenal’s Player of the Year award after a sensationally statistical 2015.

The Germany World Cup winner, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium from Real Madrid for a whopping £42.4m over two years ago, showcased his world-class brilliance this year with a flurry of flair, assists and goals.

If you thought last term’s tally of four goals and six assists in just 22 Premier League appearances was influential, Ozil’s superiority this campaign has spearheaded Arsene Wenger’s Gunners title charge this New Year.

With just 18 league games under his belt this season; Ozil has already found the back of the net three times and created 16 masterful assists, with his delivery for Giroud’s headed opener against West Brom back in November helping him become the first-ever player to provide an assist for a seventh straight match in the English top-flight.
