Proof that Arsenal ace is back to his best

Mesut Ozil divides all football fans.

Is he a misunderstood genius or a lazy so and so?

Even Arsenal fans cannot decide whether the former Real Madrid man is worth the club-record fee that Arsene Wenger felt he was.

No matter what the public perception is of the World Cup winner, Le Professeur clearly enjoys what Ozil brings to the team with the German international almost a certain starter – usually on the left-hand side much to Gooners annoyance.

Like all players seem to, though, no matter how good they’re, they take time to adjust to the beautiful game in England due to its perceived greater physical nature compared to on the continent.

Do the following stats below suggest that very cliche? Following a respectable debut season has the attacking-midfielder returned from a few months in the treatment room a new player? A player ready to take the English top flight by storm?
