This season has already seen some of the best goals scored by some of the world's best players. And while everyone always praises the goalscorers, people often forget about the assist providers - the stars who set up an inch-perfect pass or cross that leads to the goal.

Some of the world's best creative players play in the Premier League, and a number of them are already leading the record charts this season.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is not only the top goalscorer in the league currently, but is also the highest assist provider, jointly tied with Manchester United's Paul Pogba at seven assists each.

Trent Alexander-Arnold sits third with six assists, while Watford's Emmanuel Dennis, Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, and Chelsea's Mateo Kovacic are fourth with five assists each. Reece James, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jarrod Bowen, Michail Antonio, and Bruno Fernandes make up the top 10.

Kevin de Bruyne is the only player in Premier League history to win the award twice - once in 2017/18 with 16 assists and again in 2019/20 with 20 assists. Tottenham striker Harry Kane currently holds the Playmaker Award after recording 14 assists last season, along with 23 goals scored.
