Arsenal man is now the leading German scorer in the Premier League.
Mesut Ozil became the highest German scorer in the Premier League when he netted in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Leicester on Monday.
Ozil brought his side level just before the break to score his 30th goal in a Gunners shirt.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at other Germans to score in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klinsmann – 29
Not only did Klinsmann score 29 goals for Tottenham in two spells in the mid-1990s, he also got a celebration named after him after he poked fun at his reputation for diving. He scored 20 goals in 41 appearances in 1994-95 in a Spurs side that entertained and then returned on loan for the second half of the 1997-98 campaign, notching nine in 15 games in a team that narrowly avoided the drop.
Uwe Rosler – 29
Rosler is one of the cult strikers of the early Premier League era for his goals at Manchester City. Rosler, who then had a full head of hair, scored 15 of his goals in the 1994-95 campaign and adding nine the following season. He also featured for Southampton in the Premier League but did not find the net at the Dell.
Robert Huth – 21
Huth’s place on this list is testament to his longevity and aerial ability in the opposition box. The centre-half has found the net for three different clubs – Middlesbrough, Stoke and Leicester – across an 11-year period. The 34-year-old started at Chelsea but never got on the scoresheet in the league at Stamford Bridge.
Lukas Podolski – 19
The Poland-born Germany international scored 19 goals in 60 appearances over the course of three seasons for Arsenal following an £11million move from Cologne in 2012. His first season was his best at the Emirates, scoring 11 times.
Michael Ballack – 17
Ballack was one of the leading names in world football when he came to Chelsea in 2006 and he enjoyed a trophy-laden four years at Stamford Bridge. He found the net 17 times in 105 appearances, including four in the 2009-10 season when Chelsea won the Premier League.
