The Most Creative Players In The Premier League This Season
Kevin De Bruyne is officially the most creative player in the Premier League so far this season.
The Manchester City midfielder has been in fine form for the domestic treble winners and tops the table regarding chances created in the first four games of the campaign.
As per Sky Sports De Bruyne has set up 16 chances for his City teammates, five of which have been converted to goals, and is once again showing why he is considered to be one of the most complete midfielders in world football having sat out the majority of last season due to injury.
City's No.17 assisted both of his side's goals in the 2-2 draw with Spurs at the Etihad last month, causing Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville to put him in the same bracket as Steven Gerrard and David Beckham when it comes to the best crossers in the Premier League.

De Bruyne and his fellow midfield maestro David Silva, who has four assists so far, are the favourites to pick up the Premier League Playmaker of the Year award at the end of the season.
But there could be strong competition from Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is joint-second on the aforementioned list with West Ham's Manuel Lanzini after creating 14 chances this season.
The Reds' academy product registered an incredible 12 assists in the Premier League last term and has averaged an assist every two games thus far.
Paul Pogba sits in third on 11 chances created, with Riyad Mahrez, Sadio Mane, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Norwich's Emi Buendia all on 10 after frequently setting up their teammates in the opening month of the season.
