The Swans host the in-form Gunners at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.
The Gunners will be keen to maintain their fine run of form this season at the Liberty Stadium, while Garry Monk’s side will be keen to build on their recent win over Aston Villa.
We decided to compare the pair to see who comes out on top.
|Total Final Third Passes per Game||Successful Final Third Passes per Game||Total Attempted Assist per Game||Ontarget Attempted Assist per Game||Total Scoring Attempt per Game||Ontarget Scoring Attempt per Game||Total Contest per Game||Won Contest per Game|
And, unsurprisingly, it is a clear win for the in-form German, as he manages to dominate in six key areas.
So far Ozil has posted better stats when it comes to total final third passes and successful final third passes per game, as well as attempted assists and on target attempted assists.
He also comes out on top when it comes to dribbling, with him enjoying more contests per game, and also winning more contests per game than the Icelandic midfielder.
It is not all bad news for the Swansea man though, as he manages to come out on top when it comes to shooting, posting more attempted shots and attempted shots on target than the German.
Given that Ozil is well known for not being a prolific goalscorer - indeed, it is an area that his manager wants him to improve in - losing in that particular aspect is no surprise.
The gulf in quality between the two players is evident in the stats so far this season, but Swansea will be hoping it isn’t evident come Saturday afternoon.
