Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen set a new Premier League high during a 5-1 demolition of Sunderland at White Hart Lane on Monday night, creating the most clear-cut goalscoring opportunities of any player in the top flight so far this season.

Eriksen produced three killer passes which directly contributed to a pair of Spurs goals strike stars simply couldn't miss, while also smashing in a strike of his own in the second half of a masterful individual performance.

The 22-year-old has scored six times in the Premier League this season, laid on six assists and produced key passes on 44 occasions, but that grand total of 56 added together leaves him just short of a place in the division's top 10 most creative players of a fantastic campaign.

GMS has crunched the numbers to find out which player makes the most impact in the final third when goals, assists and key passes are all factored in, the true test of any attacking midfielder or modern-day centre forward.

To give you an idea of the standard required, Manchester United's £37.1m man Juan Mata has been involved in a whopping 61 goals this term for two clubs and still fails to make the cut!
