Most Premier League assists 2022/23: Playmaker Award standings

Published: 18:30, 18 September 2022

The 2022/23 Premier League season is up and running and the division’s top creators are looking to take an early lead for the Playmaker Award.

The Playmaker Award, if you didn’t know by now, is given to the player with the most assists across the Premier League campaign – first awarded in 2017/18 and won by Kevin De Bruyne with 16 assists. De Bruyne won again in 2019/20 with 20 assists, becoming the only player so far to win it twice, but not before fellow Belgian Eden Hazard scooped it up in 2018/19 (15 assists).

Tottenham striker Harry Kane secured the Playmaker Award in 2020/21 after recording 14 assists, to go with his Golden Boot-winning 23 goals. And Mohamed Salah repeated that feat last time out, securing both accolades to round off another formidable season for Liverpool’s talismanic force.
