It normally takes 15 or more assists for a Premier League player to end the season with the most assists, though Kevin De Bruyne equalled the all-time record with 20 in the 2019/20 season.
While it’s not easy to predict who will finish with the most Premier League assists in 2021/22, there will be a number of players - forwards, midfielders, and even some defenders - who began the season hoping or thinking they could top the charts come May.
Harry Kane topped the charts in 2020/21, while the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Jack Grealish and Paul Pogba will all hope to challenge after previously hitting double figures for assists in a single season.
De Bruyne was the last player to record the most assists and also end the season as a league champion, achieving the feat in 2017/18, but will one of the Premier League’s stars manage to emulate the Belgian in 2021/22?
