If you’re one of those football fans that believe the stats don’t lie – or you simply enjoy winding up Arsenal fans – then you will be of the opinion that Tottenham’s Lewis Holtby is a far better signing than Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil!
Whilst Gunners fans have been telling anyone who will listen how the German will change everything at the Emirates Stadium and how he can make more assists than a call centre worker, Lewis Holtby has been quietly going about his business at White Hart Lane.
In three starts, Tottenham’s own German playmaker has a better record than the £42.5 million man.
Holtby has managed five assists and a goal in his three starts, whilst Ozil has managed a pathetic four assists and not a single goal, despite costing £41 million more than the former Schalke man. What a waste of money!
