on

Arsenal and Germany influential playmaker Mesut Ozil has become Premier League fastest player to reach 50 EPL assists mark as Arsenal opened the scoresheet against Watford on Sunday.

The playmaker hit the 50 years in the eighth minute of the Emirate showdown with the visiting Hornets, with his circling free-kick headed home by Shkodran Mustafi for Arsenal’s 1,000th home goal of the Premier League era.

Mesut Ozil beat the helps record already held by former Manchester United legend Eric Cantona, who made it to 50 in 143 appearances for Leeds and Manchester United amid the 1990s.

Altogether, 35 players have reached the 50 assists mark. Dennis Bergkamp was the third-fastest, accomplishing the feat in his 146th appearance, with Cesc Fabregas (165 appearances) and David Silva (166) making up whatever remains of the best five.

Manchester United’s Ashley Young (192) is the only other current player to make the top 10, behind David Beckham (170), Thierry Henry (174) and Nolberto Solano (178) and ahead of ex-Liverpool player Steve McManaman who stands at (197).

Ozil’s assists was his eighth of the season in the Premier League and came only a couple of days after he set up the two goals in Arsenal’s 2-0 triumph over AC Milan in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie at the San Siro.
