Here are the Premier League players to have created the most chances this season.

Can anyone beat Kevin De Bruyne to top spot? Almost certainly not. But it could be quite the race for second.

We’ve included the chances created in total as well as the per 90 in brackets to separate the ties. Thanks to Fotmob for the stats. 


1) Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City): 66 (3.7)
Eleven Premier League assists for the season so obviously Pep Guardiola did not start him v Tottenham.


2) Kieran Trippier (Newcastle): 62 (3.0)
Created so very many chances against Crystal Palace as Newcastle continue the goalless draw vibe that prevents a title challenge.


3) Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United): 57 (2.7)
Thriving as the main man at Manchester United again after a season in the shade of Cristiano Ronaldo.


4) Andreas Pereira (Fulham): 48 (2.4)
Sorry, who? Seen as something of a joke in his time at Manchester United, Pereira is providing further evidence that it was the club we should have been laughing at.


5) Bukayo Saka (Arsenal): 47 (2.5)
Arsenal’s rise has coincided with that of Saka, who would definitely be more heavily linked with Manchester City if the Gunners weren’t flying. Then again, the Gunners wouldn’t be flying if it weren’t for Saka.


6) James Ward-Prowse (Southampton): 43 (2.0)
Does anyone do anything at Southampton other than Ward-Prowse?


7) Martin Odegaard (Arsenal): 41 (2.3)
It’s turned out to be a very good decision to leave Real Madrid for Arsenal. Odegaard’s slippery, all-action style is perfect for the Gunners. Who’d have thunk it might be the 24-year-old Norwegian lifting the Premier League trophy at season’s end?


8) Pascal Gross (Brighton): 41 (2.1)
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.


9) Morgan Gibbs-White (Nottingham Forest): 38 (2.1)
Probably the most significant piece of business done by Forest in a summer of major business. He created both goals in a vital win over Leicester.


10) Mohamed Salah (Liverpool): 38 (1.9)
Like throwing sh*t at a wall, enough chances provided by Salah should see Darwin Nunez score eventually.
