‘Terrible from Ozil’ – Fans react to Arsenal midfielder’s stats
It has now sunk in for most Arsenal fans that Mesut Ozil will not break Thierry Henry’s record of most assists in a Premier League season.
The German star was in sublime form during the first half of the season, racking up double figures in assists before the start of the new year.
However, Ozil has struggled to increase his tally since reaching a total of 18 in a frustrating finish to the campaign which has seen Arsenal surrender the title to Leicester City.
After missing Sunday’s draw with Manchester City through injury, the former Real Madrid star has only one more game left to clinch a spot in history.
But most Gooners have already given up on the dream…
Has Ozil bottled it chasing Henry's assist record? Ever since they mentioned it I'm sure he's not assisted once

So Ozil is still stuck at 18 assists for the season. Terrible second half of the season for him.

Annoys me how Ozil had 6 months to break the assist record & it didn't happen

Giroud single handedly cost Ozil the assist record, that in its self is a sellable offence.

Seriously who gives a fuck about Ozil's assist record. Henry holds the record and we can't win shit so its irrelevant

With a goal and an assist today Giroud has now done more than Ozil has done since February 28th
