Manchester United legend Gary Neville has praised Mesut Ozil’s passing ability. The former England international spoke about Ozil’s assist record during the post-match show on SkySports following Arsenal’s draw with Tottenham.
Ozil became the first player in Premier League history to assist a goal in six consecutive top-flight games.
“He found it tough for 75 minutes, but you know when the ball lands at his feet, the delivery more often than not is very good,” Neville stated on SkySports 1.
“He picks the right pass.
“It’s no surprise that it was his delivery at the end. He does a lot of the right things on the ball and delivers it into the right areas.
“It’s a great, great record. It’s some feat and he’s playing now at the level that we all imagined he would.”
Ozil was selected as man of the match by WhoScored for his performance against Spurs Tottenham.
The 27-year-old received a rating of 8.24 WhoScored. Ozil made seven key passes, made one successful dribble and maintained a passing accuracy of 82%. Ozil also provided the assist for Arsenal’s equalising goal.
The Gunners missed the opportunity to overtake Manchester City who drew with Aston Villa yesterday.
Arsenal won the first north London derby of the season after beating Spurs 2-1 at White Hart Lane in the third-round League Cup clash back in September. The last time Tottenham beat Arsenal away was back in 1993.
