Alexis’ exquisite pass for Mesut Ozil’s goal at Stoke City took him to 10 assists for the Premier League campaign.

That makes him the first top-flight player this season to reach double figures for assists and goals - he has 21 of those - and underlines what an all-round asset he is to our team.

“At the start, he was a player mainly focused on scoring goals,” said Arsène Wenger. “He developed his assist potential with us very well and now he plays in a position where he can provide as well as score.

“He’s become a complete player and has developed very well here at Arsenal Football Club. Of course, it’s an exceptional achievement and I would like to say that, to score and provide in double figures, you need to be a special player.”
