Creating chances is an art in itself, and something the best players are naturally capable of doing. They have the responsibility of picking up passes and fashioning key crosses or attempts, which are then picked up by teammates that ultimately result in crucial goals for the team.
Below is a list of the Top 5 chances creators in the Premier League so far:
5) Harry Kane
Fancy seeing a striker among the list of chief creators? Look no further than Harry Kane. The Englishman, this season, has looked to provide a tinge of versatility for Spurs, as he drifts into wide areas to let the wingers run forward and attack. His reading of the game is also immaculate, which makes him a threat to track down for the entirety of the game.
4) James Rodriguez
What a signing the Colombian is turning out to be for Everton. Under Carlo Ancelotti, he is reviving some of the talent and flair he used to be known at in Real Madrid before. Often slotting in the No 10 role, the midfielder has an eye for picking out key passes and creating a load of chances which are ultimately converted by the likes of Richarlison or Calvert-Lewin.
3) Son-Heung Min
Entering a prime phase at 29 years of age, South Korean superstar Son is only seeking to be a menace for Premier League defences. Possessing blistering pace and dribbling ability, he has likewise built a solid partnership with striker Harry Kane and supplies a good amount of chances. The winger has 6 goals in total, including 4 against Southampton in a single match.
2) Mohamed Salah
Often the centrepiece in Liverpool’s potent trio that consists of Firmino and Mane, right-winger Mohamed Salah has consistently shown that he has made his mark to devastating effect. With 14 chances created in just 4 games so far, Salah has a knack of getting into good areas in the final third. His attacking instinct means that almost every game, he will have a hand to play in a goal or assist that Liverpool score.
1) Kevin De Bruyne
Fans and pundits are running out of superlatives to describe the Belgian midfield dynamo. The heartbeat of Manchester City’s midfield, De Bruyne is a lethal presence in terms of both scoring and providing goals to teammates. He is the joint leader with Salah with 14 chances, but he has accumulated this figure playing 1 match less. The brilliance of De Bruyne accompanied by conversion from other City forwards will be key to regaining the title back from Liverpool.
