3. Thierry Henry | 18 assists
Arguably the greatest goal scorer the Premier League has seen, and his exploits were not just confined to English football.
The Frenchman took his side to a Champions League final and went on to win it with Barcelona a few years later.
Having appeared well over 100 times in the competition, Henry has also scored 50 times but will no doubt surprise a few to hear he has assisted as many as he has.
