1) Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United): 119 (3.2)
“His quality of his balls into the box – if you’re a striker it’s a dream, you make some runs and he picks you out,” said Roy Keane. He absolutely does. Only eight assists shows that the strikers have not been good enough.


2) Kieran Trippier (Newcastle): 110 (3.0)
A first assist in nine v Brighton but seven assists in total seems a little meagre from all those chances created.


3) Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City): 98 (3.6)
No longer the chances created king – largely down to City rotation – but his 16 assists put him four clear of Mo Salah and Leandro Trossard in joint-second.


4) Pascal Gross (Brighton): 80 (2.2)
The German really has been a phenomenal signing and is somehow only 31. Long may he continue to be quietly brilliant and create a ludicrous number of chances for Brighton.


5) Martin Odegaard (Arsenal): 76 (2.2)
The creative leader behind Arsenal’s title tilt, before he was thoroughly put in his place against Manchester City. And he was rotten v Nottingham Forest. Back to form with three chances created v Wolves.


6) Bukayo Saka (Arsenal): 75 (2.1)
The first Premier League player this season to log double figures for both Premier League goals and assists but was eventually overtaken by Odegaard.


7) James Ward-Prowse (Southampton): 74 (2.0)
He could not keep the Saints in the Premier League on his own.


8) Michael Olise (Crystal Palace): 72 (2.4)
Created a ludicrous seven chances v Nottingham Forest to cap off an impressive 11-assist season.


9) Trent Alexander-Arnold: 71 (2.2)
Alexander-Arnold 2.0 is loving his new role, with seven assists in his last 10 games after just two in his first 29 this season.


10) James Maddison (Leicester City): 69 (2.5)
Leicester City really would be f***ed without him. They were also kind of f***ed with him.
