Frank Lampard to Didier Drogba is the most prolific assist-goal combination in the history of the Premier League.

The Chelsea pair are the most lethal duo, with Manchester City double act David Silva and Sergio Aguero coming in three goals behind on 21 after nine fruitful years together.

Darren Anderton laid it on a plate for Teddy Sheringham 20 times in their time at Spurs, while the combination of Steve McManaman and Robbie Fowler also threw up the same amount of goals.

Aguero is in again in fourth spot, having been on the end of some delightful passes/crosses from Kevin De Bruyne on 19 occasions ever since the Belgian returned to England in 2015 - with Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane also managing the same tally.
