Mesut Ozil has claimed that his extra work in training will help him improve his goal tally this season.

The German World Cup winner has scored just two goals in all competitions this season so far, but has provided 10 assists in 11 Premier League games, the first player ever to do so.

Ozil, who scored seven goals in his first season at the Emirates and five in his second, has revealed that he has been staying behind after training to work on his finishing.

"After training there are a few shooting drills that can help with self-belief," Ozil told Arsenal Player.

"In general, when you look at my chances in front of goal, I've taken them well.

"Every player wants to score goals. I'm intending to score more this season than in previous years. It's most important for us to perform well and to be successful. I'm looking forward to giving assists or scoring goals.

"My aim is to score more goals this season than in the last two. I think I'm on a good path and will achieve that."

The Gunners are currently second in the league table, level on points with leaders Manchester City after 12 games.
