10) Kevin Mirallas (Everton): 5 assists
The Belgium international has been an absolute revelation since joining the Toffees two years ago, with the wide man simply continuing on in this campaign where he left off in the previous season, as his five assists in the top flight to date testify.
9) Eden Hazard (Chelsea): 5 assists
Without doubt, one of the players of the Premier League season so far, with a healthy five assists to go alongside his impressive goals tally for the west London club too.
8) Chris Brunt (West Bromwich Albion): 5 assists
Perhaps a surprise entry in this top ten from the Northern Ireland international, especially considering the 29-year-old Baggies skipper has been playing in a struggling side that has found goals hard to come by so far this season.
7) Adam Lallana (Southampton): 5 assists
The newly capped England international has been one of the stars of the south coast club’s surprise form in the top flight this season, with the 25-year-old’s eye for a pass one of the chief reasons behind his first-ever call-up by the Three Lions last year.
6) Steven Gerrard (Liverpool): 6 assists
The veteran Reds skipper still has it clearly, with an impressive six goals created for team-mates in his club’s excellent campaign to date, and that number could have been even higher but for an injury-enforced layoff before Christmas.
5) Jordan Henderson (Liverpool): 6 assists
The young Englishman has really trained on at Anfield this season under the watchful eye of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, as six assists to his name already demonstrates, and we are only in January too.
4) Jesus Navas (Manchester City): 6 assists
There were more than a few raised eyebrows when the north-west outfit decided to splash out £14.9m in order to bring the wide man to Eastlands from La Liga side Sevilla last summer, however, with six assists already to the Spaniard’s name, those doubters have been quickly proved wrong.
3) David Silva (Manchester City): 6 assists
The twinkle-toed Spain international has always been one of the most creative midfielders on Planet Football, with this current campaign proving to be no different than past seasons.
2) Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal): 6 assists
What a campaign so far from the Welshman, with not just plenty of goals from midfield, but also six assists as well from the youngster’s boot – so no wonder the north London club are currently leading the way in the Premier League then!
1) Mesut Ozil (Arsenal): 7 assist
No real surprise to see the German’s name at the head of the list, especially given the playmaker’s reputation upon signing for the north London club for being the King of the Assists during his time at Spanish giants Real Madrid.
