Ozil is one of the most creative players in the world and is a key figure in the current Arsenal team.

The 27-year-old former Real Madrid star scored six goals and created 144 chances in 35 Premier League appearances for the Gunners during the 2015-16 campaign.

So far this season, the Germany international has scored one goal and created two chances in two league matches for the North London outfit.

For Arsenal to challenge for the Premier League title this season, Ozil has to be on top of his game.

The 2014 World Cup winner with Germany has had issues with consistency during his time at Arsenal, but there can be no doubt that the former Werder Bremen star is a world-class footballer.
