EPL stats: Which players have registered the most assists in 2022-23 Premier League season?

Goal scorers might take most of the limelight in football, however, they are not the only reason behind a team’s successful campaign. Every player on the pitch has a part to play and only when they all execute it to perfection, a team will be able to win matches on a regular basis. One such important role in a team’s success is a goal creator. This role can be executed by a player in different positions. He can be an attacking midfielder, wide player or even a frontman who regularly produces assists to help his side score plenty of goals.

Which player has registered the most assists?

The player at the top of the assists chart is Manchester City’s ever-consistent playmaker Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian has yet again been the difference on the pitch, as he continues to produce impressive numbers for Pep Guardiola’s side. His link-up play with Man City’s goal scoring machine Erling Haaland has been a treat to watch this season. Overall, De Bruyne has registered 16 assists over the course of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.

Second position is shared by two players. Mohamed Salah of Liverpool and Leandro Trossard from Arsenal have had seasons to remember thanks to their consistently top performances. The duo has played an important role in their team’s attacking creativity. Salah – as usual – stood out despite Liverpool’s struggles on the pitch which saw them finish outside the top four positions and get eliminated in earlier rounds of the cup competitions.

Meanwhile, Trossard has been brilliant since moving to Arsenal in January. He has played a vital role in the Gunners pushing for an unlikely title charge. Even though Arsenal fell short in their quest to win the league title, they can still be happy with where they finished and one of the important reasons for their success is Trossard. In the end though, Salah and Trossard have registered 12 assists each this season.

Who are the other notable names?

Bukayo Saka of Arsenal, Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold have managed 11, 10 and 9 league assists respectively. Manchester United’s midfield duo of Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen have registered eight assists each. Haaland has also managed eight assists to his name.
