Mesut Ozil Sets Premier League Record – Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has set a new Premier League record for the most chances created in a season.
The Gunners season has fallen apart at the seams, going from top of the league and in contention for three trophies in January to battling for 4th place and no chance of silverware in April.
Ozil however has been stellar for most of the season, which has been recognized with a nomination for PFA Player of the Year.
Ozil’s 137 chances created this season breaks the record which previously belonged to Frank Lampard, who created 134 chances in the 2008/09 season. The third place belongs, rather surprisingly, to Lampard’s Chelsea teammate Florent Malouda, who created 117 chances for the Blues in 2010/11.
