Mesut Ozil broke one of his own Premier League records against Hull City

Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon was a bittersweet match for Mesut Ozil.

Although the Gunners smashed their opponents, Ozil missed an absolute sitter midway through the first half. From the edge of six-yard box, the Germany international skied his shot high over the crossbar.

But while that miss probably kept Ozil up last night, the 27-year-old can take comfort from the fact that he broke one of his own Premier League records against the Tigers.

Although he’d no doubt have preferred the goal, this isn’t a bad consolation.

It at least shows how involved Ozil was throughout the 90 minutes.

Ozil breaks his own Premier League record

According to Squawka, Ozil completed 104 passes against Hull and that’s the most he’s ever completed in a single Premier League match.

Arsenal impressive against Hull

Alexis Sanchez scored the opener for the visitors in the 17th minute. Ozil then missed his sitter before Hull were reduced to 10 men when Jake Livermore was shown a straight red card five minutes before half-time.

Theo Walcott doubled the Gunners’ advantage after the break, but Robert Snodgrass’ 79th-minute penalty threatened to set up a nervy finish for Arsene Wenger’s side.

Sanchez, though, restored Arsenal’s two-goal deficit before Granit Xhaka smashed in a late fourth.
