The Germany international has become the fastest player to reach 50 assists in the English top flight, following the Gunners' 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday afternoon. 

It took the 29-year-old just 141 games to reach the special milestone, surpassing the previous record set by Cantona, who took 143 games to rack up 50 assists.

A free-kick from Ozil found Shkodran Mustafi's head as the Gunners went in front after eight minutes against the Hornets. The North London side then scored two more in the second half, through goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
