Ozil missed the game due to a foot injury but that did not stop Arsenal fans paying tribute to the playmaker.
“We’ve got Ozil. Mesut Ozil. I just don’t think you understand. He’s Arsene Wenger’s man. He’s better than Zidane,” Arsenal fans chanted at the Britannia stadium.
Ozil has already provided 16 assists in the Premier League this season and is just four assists away from matching Thierry Henry’s record tally of 20.
The Germany international is expected to return this weekend for his sides clash with Chelsea.
Arsenal will remain at the top of the table if they defeat Chelsea on Saturday however, if the Gunners drop points they can be overtaken by both Manchester City and Leicester City.
