*League assists only

Scholes: 138

Pirlo: 42

Xavi: 66

Once again Scholes is streets ahead of his two rivals when it comes to laying on goals for his team-mates.

It's remarkable, given the standing of all three, just how far ahead the Manchester United man is.

Providing assists isn't necessarily part of all three's main job when on the pitch, so to see Scholes finish with such a high number is both remarkable and a testament to his versatility. 

Winner: Scholes
