Thomas Muller has enjoyed a resurgence in form over the past couple of seasons, with midfielder/playmaker starring on the pitch as seen by the 27 assists he has registered so far this year.

The 32-year-old has been his usual brilliant self for Bayern Munich and has been even more impressive for Germany after being called up after a gap of three years, considering that he was left out in the cold following their poor performance in the 2018 World Cup.

2. Filip Kostic - 21 assists in 34 games

Filip Kostic might not be a well known name in footballing circles, but the 29-year-old has ensured that he is one of the most feared players in the Bundesliga this year, as seen by the 21 assists he has registered in just 34 games.

The 29-year-old who is capable of playing as a left-back and a left-winger has been brilliant and will no doubt be on the radar for a number of top clubs if he continues this form as the season progresses.
