Top 10: Greatest assist providers in Premier League history (1)

Published 7 Comments

Players able to pick a lock, split the defence, and generally pass the ball in the rough direction of a team-mate have become something of a must-have accessory in the Premier League in recent seasons.

Teams like Chelsea simply couldn't withstand their desire to sign playmakers for a single summer so splashed £32 million on Willian, while Arsenal shattered their club record for Mesut Ozil.

Manchester United meanwhile were so desperate for one yet somehow they still only ended up with Marouane Fellaini. Go figure.

Yep, playmakers - or indeed anyone who can tee up a goal - are pretty en-vogue right now.

Any of the new-boys mentioned above have some way to go before they can be considered one of the best the Premier League has ever seen however - as these ten players show, getting onto the overall most assists in Premier League history list is no mean feat.
