Here are the Premier League players to have created the most chances this season.

We’ve included the chances created in total as well as the per 90 in brackets to separate the ties. Thanks to Fotmob for the stats. 

 

1) Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United): 77 (3.0)
Last year’s chance creation leader is figuring very highly again in this campaign. He created eight chances v Aston Villa as Man Utd dominated in the air. Also ranks highly for pretending to be injured.

 

2) Pascal Gross (Brighton): 73 (3.1)
A quietly brilliant player who can play just about any position on the pitch. He created a faintly ludicrous eight chances v Sheffield United and claimed his ninth Premier League assist of the season; the 10th came in stoppage-time against Everton. They missed him v Fulham.

 

3) Martin Odegaard (Arsenal): 70 (3.0
Claimed two assists v West Ham as he created seven chances – his biggest haul in a Premier League game this season. Enjoyed himself against Newcastle and Sheffield United.

 

4) Bukayo Saka (Arsenal): 66 (2.7)
Has claimed eight Premier League assists this season and is among the most creative players in the Premier League.

 

5) Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United): 63 (2.6)
He really is at the heart of everything Newcastle produce going forward. Claimed his 10th assist of the season v Bournemouth.

 

6) Julian Alvarez (Manchester City): 61 (2.6)
A quietly brilliant player who will probably end up being a phenomenal screening midfielder at some point or something. Logged his eighth Premier League assist of the season v Man Utd.

 

7) Andreas Pereira (Fulham): 59 (2.8)
Another playmaker who would quite like his club to buy a prolific striker, thank you. Finally claimed his fifth assist of the season v Burnley and very much enjoyed his return to Old Trafford cheers.

 

8) Phil Foden (Manchester City): 57 (2.3)
A real positive for Gareth Southgate that two of his forward players are on this list.

 

9) Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool): 53 (2.9)
Finally claimed his fourth Premier League assist of the season v Burnley.

 

10) Alfie Doughty (Luton Town): 53 (2.5)
Has six Premier League assists for the season but don’t go thinking that’s enough to keep Luton in the Premier League.
