Mesut Ozil surpasses Eric Cantona as quickest to 50 Premier League assists

Mesut Ozil's assist for Shkodran Mustafi during Arsenal's game against Watford on Sunday was his 50th in the Premier League and saw him become the quickest ever to reach that milestone.

Having reached that landmark in just 141 game the feat saw him break Eric Cantona's all-time record in the division.

Former Manchester United forward Cantona reached the same number in 143 games.

Mustafi's goal, which came eight minutes into the game, was Arsenal's 1,000th in the Premier League.
