Ozil scored a goal on four shots (two on target) and tallied an assist in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

Ozil was electric on Sunday in the early going, finding Alexis Sanchez on a magnificent cross and then scored seconds later for his first goal of the season. He's now up to four assists in Premier League play and has shown himself to be an absolute magician with the ball. When he's engaged, he's one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, the problem is that he seems to drift in-and-out of games.

Ozil tallied an assist in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Leicester City.

While Ozil would've loved to have scored a goal against Kasper Schmeichel and threatened a couple of times, the uber-creative German cleverly found the head of Alexis Sanchez for his third assist of the Premier League season. His creativity has forced Aaron Ramsey out wide and Santi Cazorla in a deeper lying position, but is worth it to keep Ozil centrally situated.

The London team is expected to increase his wages as a result of the extension. Arsenal is working on contract extensions for a number of their key players.

Ozil provided the assist on Arsenal's opening goal Saturday against Stoke City.

Ozil used a wonderful lobbed through ball to put teammate Theo Walcott in scoring position Saturday, giving the German his second assist of the campaign. Considering Arsenal have only scored three goals themselves so far this season, Ozil's assist mark evidences his strong contribution to the Gunners' attack thus far.

Ozil (knee) started and played all 90 minutes of Germany's Euro 2016 qualifier against Poland on Friday.

Ozil missed Arsenal's last Premier League match before the international break due to a minor knee injury, but his return for Germany certainly opens up his availability to face Stoke City on Saturday.

Ozil will not play Saturday against Newcastle because of a minor knee injury.

The news of Ozil's injury wasn't disclosed until after lineups were announced, but at least Arsenal are playing in the first game of the weekend for fantasy manager to make adjustments. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will move into the starting lineup.

Ozil recorded his first assist of the season on Sunday, as Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 2-1.

Ozil set up teammate Olivier Giroud by fizzing a left-sided cross into the penalty area, where the Frenchman converted a stellar volley. Following a lackluster Week 1 display, Ozil was rather influential in the Gunners' attack Sunday, leading the team with five goalscoring chances created.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ozil had a promising second season for Arsenal, although he scored just four goals and assisted on only five.

Although he failed to match his debut season total of six goals and 11 assists, the German was actually much more influential this year and looked comfortable and confident in his role. Ozil has stated that he is very happy at the club, and he will be a big part of their plans moving forward.
