While scoring goals is something that every top attacker would want to do, other players would want to contribute to the goals scored.
For a long time, those assisting goals were rarely recognized and it is for these reasons that the Premier League came about with the Playmaker award to recognize those who had the highest number of assists in a season.
While Paul Pogba has started well in this front for Man United, with Trent Alexander Arnold proving that providing goals can be done by defenders too, who are the highest assist providers in the top five European leagues this season?
- Mohammed Salah (Liverpool)-9
- Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool)-8
- Gabriel Jesus (Man City-7
- Paul Pogba (Man United)-7
- Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich)-13
- Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen)-8
- Andrey Kramaric (Hoffenheim)-7
- Oscar Trejo (Rayo Vallecano)-8
- Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)-7
- Iker Munain (Athletic Bilbao)-5
