Ozil edges closer to Ronaldo and Messi in assist charts following impressive display against Basel

The Arsenal playmaker had a hand in another goal during his side's impressive Champions League victory in Switzerland

Mesut Ozil further underlined his playmaking credentials by registering another assist in Arsenal's dominant display against Basel in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Germany international set up Alex Iwobi in the second half as the Gunners went 4-0 up against the Swiss outfit at St. Jakob-Park.

Lucas Perez scored a hat-trick inside 47 minutes for Arsene Wenger's men as they reigned supreme on the road in Europe's elite club competition.

And Ozil was very much at the heart of everything for Arsenal before being substituted after 74 minutes.

The former Real Madrid man's assist for Iwobi was his 23rd since his Champions League debut with only Cristiano Ronaldo (26) and Lionel Messi (24) having produced more in that time.
