ESPN has produced statistical evidence of the top four players with the most assists from open play across the top five European leagues during the 2014-15 season, with no representatives from the Barclays Premier League.

4) Luis Suarez – Barcelona (13 assists)
The former Liverpool striker has been in superb form for the La Liga and Copa Del Rey holders since his big money move last summer.

He has since gone on to register 12 more assists and ranks fourth in this list.
