The record for the highest number of assists provided lies with Ryan Giggs at 162. And the Manchester City man is already on his way to get close to the record set by the former United superstar. Here is the list of the highest assisters in the Premier League: 

  • 162 – Ryan Giggs
  • 111 – Cesc Fàbregas
  • 103 – Wayne Rooney
  • 102 – Frank Lampard
  • 94 – Dennis Bergkamp
  • 92 – Steven Gerrard
  • 90 – David Silva
  • 84 – James Milner
  • 80 – David Beckham
  • 77 – Kevin De Bruyne

While the attackers didn’t get on the scoresheet this weekend, the two starting centre-backs, John Stones and Ruben Dias were the pair who scored the goals for the Cityzens against West Ham United in their most recent outing. De Bruyne’s assist for Dias’ goal leveled him at the top of the highest number of assists this season. 

What’s more, the Belgian is now at the top of the number of assists provided all across the continent too. No player has created as many goals as De Bruyne this season, with 11 goals assisted by the 2020 PFA Player of the Year.
