You will struggle to see a better pass all season.
Mesut Ozil has had a turbulent few weeks of late but returned to the Arsenal starting XI in devastating fashion against Burnley.
The silky German playmaker produced arguably the pass of the season to help set up the Gunners opening goal that was finished by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Ozil produced a perfectly weighted pass across the Burnley defence to find an onrushing Sead Kolasinac who then squared to Aubameyang.
The most staggering thing about the pass is that it quite literally wasn’t even on.
The German capped off some intricate passing from Arsenal on the edge of the Burnley box before producing a pass that will leave you drooling.
Ozil won’t get the assist for the goal but his role in the move cannot be understated.
He’s returned to answer his many critics in the best way possible, producing those moments of magic that we all know he’s more than capable of.
Unai Emery handed him the armband for the meeting of Burnley and he’s turned in a captains’ performance so far.
This truly is Ozil’s world and we’re all just living in it.
