Mesut Ozil has written his name into Premier League history as he notched his 50th assist to put Arsenal ahead against Watford.

The Germany international has been a prodigious provider of goals since swapping Real Madrid for the Emirates Stadium in 2014.

And he was once again crucial on Sunday as his free-kick found the head of Shkodran Mustafi to open the scoring.

It was Ozil’s 50th Premier League assist, a milestone he has achieved in record time.

The playmaker needed just 141 games to reach his half-century, fewer than any other player in the competition’s history.

He takes the record from none other than Eric Cantona, who, despite being better known for the spectacular goals he scored, recorded 50 assists in 143 outings.
