There is often much speculation about who the most creative player in the Premier League is, with the likes of Manchester City's David Silva, Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Manchester United's Juan Mata amongst those viewed as midfield maestros.

However, a study conducted by the Mirror's Row Zed has revealed that in fact none of the above three are statistically the most creative player in England's top division, with players judged by the amount of chances created per game.

The third most creative player is - unsurprisingly - Edin Hazard, creating on average 3.7 chances per game.

The 24-year-old Belgian has been a consistent threat in a strong Chelsea side for the past three seasons, and has won the PFA Young Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year in consecutive seasons at Stamford Bridge.

The winger has been rumoured with a move away from the capital to Real Madrid, potentially as Cristiano Ronaldo's replacement.

In second place is Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, creating on average 3.8 chances per game. The Spaniard has played a pivotal role in the Gunners' midfield in years of late, dropping into the deeper role, and using his creative talents with both feet to dictate play.

However, neither Hazard nor Cazorla compare to the Premier League's most creative player that is the languid Mesut Ozil, creating an average of 4.4 chances per game. This comes as no surprise, though, given the ex-Real Madrid man's ability to pick out passes oblivious to the human eye.

Doubt has surrounded the German since his £42.5 million transfer to north London in 2013, but statistics don't lie - Ozil was - and still is - the ultimate no.10.
