Who will finish the season as the best playmaker in the English top flight? Goal brings you the latest in the race for most goals created

Unsurprisingly given their position at the top of the table, Manchester City are dominating this season's Premier League assists chart.

Pep Guardiola's side is littered with creative talent and Kevin De Bruyne is looking to defend his crown as the English top flight's assist king.

He faces stiff competition from team-mates David Silva and Leroy Sane, though, as well as the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil, Dele Alli and Mohamed Salah.

Paul Pogba is also in the race, drawing level with City duo De Bruyne and Sane on nine with two assists against Stoke City on Monday.
