Harry Kane Spurs

Harry Kane might be third in the early stages of the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, but the Tottenham striker has more assists this season any other player in Europe.

Here are the top ten assist providers from Europe’s top five leagues…

10) Gaetan Laborde – Montpellier

Assists: 4
Appearances: 7
Minutes per assist: 152

Laborde scored a goal and created another in the same Ligue Un match three times last season – only Kylian Mbappe and Neymar achieved that feat more often, with both PSG stars on four.


9) Jonathan Bamba – Lille

Assists: 4
Appearances: 7
Minutes per assist: 158

“Last season was not good in terms of my expectations,” said Bamba of his own performances last term. The 24-year-old created five goals and scored only one but he has started this season on fire, with three goals in addition to four assists.


8) Florian Thauvin – Marseille

Assists: 4
Appearances: 7
Minutes per assist: 141


7) John McGinn – Aston Villa

Assists: 4
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 90

Despite Jack Grealish and Ross Barkley hogging the headlines for Villa this term, McGinn has provided the most assists. Only on the opening day did the Scotland midfielder fail to create a goal.


6) Thomas Muller – Bayern Munich

Assists: 4
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 88

Muller is starting where he left off last term when he set a Bundesliga record for most assists in a single season. The Bayern Munich star created 21 goals to break the previous benchmark set by Kevin De Bruyne in 2014-15.

5) Kylian Mbappe – Paris Saint-Germain

Assists: 4
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 86

The France star is doing his best to put himself in the shop window for next season. Axel Tuanzebe and Aaron Wan-Bissaka didn’t help him…


4) Giovanni Reyna – Borussia Dortmund

Assists: 4
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 85

The 17-year-old recorded three of his four assists in the same game when he laid on the opening three goals in Dortmund’s 4-0 win over Freiburg.


3) Dani Olmo – RB Leipzig

Assists: 4
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 80

With Timo Werner gone, Leipzig have played the last couple of games without a striker, with Emil Forsberg furthest forward and Olmo in a free role behind him. It seems to work…


2) Darwin Nunez – Benfica

Assists: 5
Appearances: 4
Minutes per assist: 83

Uruguay international winger Nunez has started to repay Benfica’s faith after they smashed the Portuguese transfer record to pay Almeria around £20million this summer.


1) Harry Kane – Tottenham

Assists: 7
Appearances: 5
Minutes per assist: 63

The Spurs striker recorded a ridiculous four assists in the 5-2 at Southampton (before capping his performance with a goal of his own) and he’s created a goal in each of the three matches since.
