Arsenal set Premier League passing mark in 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle

Arsenal’s conjured up the definitive example of a team goal during their 4-0 win against Newcastle on Sunday, with Mesut Ozil’s late strike breaking the record for most passes leading to a goal in the Premier League so far this season.

The German got on the end of Alexandre Lacazette’s neat lay-off and beat Martin Dubravka with a close-range strike in the 90th minute to put the result beyond doubt at Emirates Stadium.

It was Ozil’s first goal since April and although Dubravka perhaps could have done more to keep the shot out, there was no doubting the quality of the build-up.
