Ask your average Arsenal supporter to describe Mesut Ozil's playing style last season and they might have suggested 'relaxed', 'lackadaisical' or even 'a right lazy b***tard'.

Ozil is never going to be a player that looks like he's busting a gut but Arsenal fans might be surprised to learn exactly how much his efforts have improved.

In the second half of last season after Christmas, Ozil was looking tired but this term has been different. In just eight games after Christmas this season - compared to 12 last season - Ozil has produced more sprints, leading to a much better sprints per 90 minutes average.
