The calendar year of 2022 has already passed to April with a number of players putting on some spectacular performances as they look to lead their clubs to honours come the end of the 2021/22 season.

Here, we take a look at five players who have registered the most assists so far in 2022.

1. Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona) - 8 assists in 14 games

It looked a certainty that Ousmane Dembele would be forced out of Barcelona in January, but that did not happen as the player refused to move elsewhere.

While it looked like he would spend the remainder of the season on the bench, the Frenchman has performed spectacularly when given the opportunity on the pitch, registering eight assists in 14 appearances in all competitions this calendar year.

His resurgence has been one of the reasons why the Catalan giants have been brilliant under Xavi and his performances have led to the club asking him to sign a new deal with them.

2. Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo) - 7 assists in 11 games

Domenico Berardi is perhaps one of the most underrated players in the Serie A and does not get the recognition he deserves which is surprising, considering that he has been brilliant for Sassuolo ever since he joined them in 2015.

The 27-year-old has registered seven assists so far this calendar year and is one the key reasons why his side find themselves placed 10th in league.

3. Benjamin Bourigeaud (Rennes) - 7 assists in 13 games

Another player who is not widely known around the world is Benjamin Bourigeaud, with the midfielder an integral presence for Rennes as they push to qualify for the Champions League next season.

There is no doubt that the 28-year-old will catch the interest of top European clubs in the near future if he continues to impress in midfield.

4. Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig) - 7 assists in 15 games

There is arguably not better all round player in the world at the moment than Christopher Nkunku, with the Frenchman not only providing a huge number of assists, but also scoring a staggering 27 goals in all competitions so far this season.

That he is a midfielder by trade and can score and assist with such regularity, goes to show just how talented he is.

5. Andy Robertson (Liverpool) - 7 assists in 16 games

Widely considered as the best left-back in the world, Andy Robertson has been one of the most consistent performers for Liverpool in the recent past.

The 28-year-old is good both in defence and attack, and is a key cog of the side under Jurgen Klopp.
