The £42.5 million deadline day signing Mesut Özil has definitely helped the Gunners topping the assists column with 6 assists despite not having played all the 13 Premier League encounters. The German quickly settled in at Arsenal and started in red hot form but the North Londoners have seen that form dwindle of late, however Mesut notched two assists in the last game.
Cardiff City 3 – 2 Manchester City
Having said all this I think the North London outfit will be near if not at the top of the pile come May 2014, mainly because of their hunger, desire, team spirit and young talent. Arsenal’s post-Christmas form has been second to none during recent years and should they continue that the trophy cabinet at the Emirates will be dusted out.
