Premier League

Top 5 assist providers in the Premier league

While we wait for another long international break to be over, we take a look at some of the most creative players so far in the Premier League after 7 games into the season.

This list will feature the top 5 players with the most assists who have created a goal more than, at least, two times.

5. Michail Antonio, West Ham United - 3 assists.

The striker has been David Moyes' best player and is already proven to be one to watch out for as the season progresses. He scored 5 goals already this season and will definitely be one of the main competitors in the race for the Golden Boot this season.

4. Mohammed Salah, Liverpool - 3 assists.

The inside forward is taking on a more creative responsibility in Jurgen Klopp's tactical system as well as shouldering the goal responsibilities. He seems well on the way for another golden boot this season but could also be in contention for the playmaker's award.

3. Gabriel Jesus, Manchester City - 4 assists.

Manchester City have been playing without a striker since the start of last season. Many thought that Jesus would be the resident number 9 as soon as Sergio Aguero left. But Pep Guardiola has opted to pay the Brazilian off the right wing. It has been a master stroke because the forward is getting both goals and assists.

2. Abdoulaye Doucoure, Everton - 4 assists.

After his move from Watford, Carlo Ancelotti did not give him much freedom to roam forward and get at the end of chances. Raga Benitez has changed that which is why the midfielder is so far up on the list for lost assists. He has taken on the major creative role that James Rodriguez left behind.

1. Paul Pogba, Manchester United - 7 assists.

Pogba got most of his assists during the opening game of the season as he created 4 goals against Marcel Bielsa's Leeds United in a game that ended with the Frenchman securing 4 assists and broke a few records in the process.
