Ten players in Premier League history with the most assists after 18 games.
With the Premier League now at the halfway point, it’s no surprise to see familiar names at the top of the assist charts. However, if we cast our glances back through the history of the league we can find a few surprises propping up the top ten.

Lampard was in the infancy of his Stamford Bridge career when he began to establish himself not just as a prolific goalscorer from centre-midfield, but also as a creative tour de force, too.
9. Robert Pires – Arsenal 2000-01
The Frenchman was a missing piece of the jigsaw for Wenger when he arrived in north London, and provided much ammunition for both Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.
