The Belgian remains at the top of the assist standings with a total of 16 and has his sights firmly set on Thierry Henry’s longstanding record of 20 – his first chance to edge closer to that tally will be against Arsenal in one of the league’s first two games back.
Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is De Bruyne’s closest challenger, sitting on 12 after adding two in his side’s win over West Ham in gameweek 24. The England international is ahead of Wolves wing-wonder Adama Traoré who has created nine goals for his side.
The Spaniard sits ahead of a trio on 8 assists (Andy Robertson, Son Heung-min and Riyad Mahrez) and after that there are a whole host of players with 7 assists so far this season.
However, with minutes played separating a large majority of the top 10, things change with every passing gameweek.
