Stats are impressive, no doubt, but I was talking more about my subjective impression of his game. He is playing for a very different team than Henry was. City has a habit of going wild on weaker teams and banging enormous number of balls in single games like that (as they did with Villa this weekend), instead of resting players and calming down once they clearly won, as other teams would usually do. I think that gives them bloated stats that doesn't always necessarily reflect the quality of game for individual players.What are you talking about? He's already on 12 goals and 15 assists and it's still January. He's undoubtedly the best midfielder in the world this season and quite possibly the best player in the league (I'd certainly say so, although there's also a few great choices). Henry's assist record is only 6 passes away, and he's not going to crumble like Özil did.
Again - he is good, but I am not sure if his current season is really as good as some of the GOATs. Just my opinion, not trying to prove anything
