The 2021/22 Premier League season reached a dramatic climax on Sunday and the race for the Playmaker Award was an equally riveting affair.
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 this time around, securing both accolades to round off another formidable season for Liverpool’s talismanic force.
