Premier League most assists

Watkins and Trippier lead the Premier League most assists chart after Gameweek 27

The assist king of this Premier League era, Kevin De Bruyne, made a late entry to the show this season, keeping the numbers at bay. However, even after coming back from a major hamstring injury, he has accumulated 4 assists to his name with just 11 more games to go. Anything is possible for the City side that just loves scoring goals.

Rodri has been running the show in the absence of the showman and has been pivotal in midfield, surpassing all his previous bests this season. It’s always a ‘never say never’ scenario when you have Salah around, whose second half of the season has been less impactful due to injury concerns, similar to another provider, Alexander-Arnold, whose absence has added more burden to Klopp’s last season.

Arsenal is flying high this season, with Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard turning into the poster boys of the club as they grab all the attention with their outstanding goal involvement so far.

As the big names slowly make their way, the center stage has shifted to Ollie Watkins, who is unstoppable at the moment, followed by Pascal Groß and Kieran Trippier as the joint top playmakers this campaign.

The 28-year-old is going full throttle this campaign. Watkins has been the heartbeat for his side, making sure the goals keep coming. He has become reliable, threatening, and significant in the front for Aston Villa, always finding a way to put a smile on Unai Emery’s face.

Pascal Groß | Brighton & Hove Albion | 10 assists

The German has been a crucial distributor for Brighton this season. He takes charge of dictating the tempo of the game and tearing apart defenses. This season, he has played as a left-back, right-back, central midfield, and attacking midfield, fitting in perfectly for his side and ensuring the Seagulls soar this season.

Newcastle has found some shape after the faulty start of 2024, and the captain has helped with one assist in three consecutive games for his side after returning from a groin injury. He played a key role in their recent victory over Wolves but will miss the next set of games due to a calf problem.

Mohamed Salah | Liverpool | 9 assists

Salah’s consistency in terms of goals, influence, fitness, and hunger has kept the winger among the Premier League elites. His performance in the first half of the season still keeps him in contention for the playmaker award this campaign, which he would love to take home at the end of the season.

Pedro Neto | Wolverhampton Wanderers | 9 assists

The Portuguese winger has had an amazing run of form under Gary O’Neil. Even though he missed out on two months, he still managed to provide 9 assists. He is just 23 years old, and there is a lot more from the youngster to look forward to.
