For goals to be scored,there is usually progression of the ball from behind to the front.Someone who sets up a team mate to score bears the assist.I take you through the leading assisters in the PL after game week 31.
Harry Kane is still leading the pack despite not registering a goal contribution against Manchester United.Son scored via a Lucas Moura effort.
Bruno Fernandes is second placed after Harry.He also failed to produce an attacking return against Tottenham.He has always been faulted for not turning up in big games.
Kevin De Bruyne is level on points with Bruno Fernandes as both players have eleven assists.De Bruyne was left out of the Leeds match however as he was on the bench.
Jack Grealish closes the gap of those who have 10+ assists this season.He sustained an injury and thus is still away.Son Heung min has nine assists to his name so far.
Patrick Bamford,Marcus Rashford,Aaron Creswell and Patrick Bamford follow in at seven assists for this season.While Raphina and Lucas Digne come in at 6 assists.So who is likely to emerge top at the end of the season?
