The Top 10 Premier League Assist Makers Of The Decade

The Top 10 Premier League Assist Makers Of The Decade

David Silva assisted a bucketload of goals with three different hairstyles in the 2010s and finishes the decade as the Premier League's top assister by a considerable margin.

The Spaniard, who signed for City from Valencia in a £24 million deal after the 2010 World Cup, has assisted 89 goals in the league and been an absolute joy to watch.

He's well and truly the assist king of the decade, finishing with 27 more set-ups than Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen. Silva, a four-time Premier League winner, is also the clear winner when it comes to chances created.

Silva's teammate Kevin De Bruyne, who is well ahead in the assist charts this term, is in third place on 58 after an incredible return to English football's top tier.

Cesc Fabregas's tally of 55 for Arsenal and Chelsea means he is just about ahead of Wayne Rooney and Eden Hazard on 54, with Mesut Ozil and James Milner managing 53 and 52 assists respectively.

Juan Mata has assisted a half century of goals in the Premier League in the 2010s to end up in ninth position, with West Brom captain Chris Brunt and his wand of a left foot finishing the list in tenth on 47 assists.

As well as having the chief playmaker of the decade, the top goalscorer of the 2010s also belongs to Manchester City.

Despite persistent injury problems, Sergio Aguero netted a ridiculous 174 goals in the decade, 38 ahead of Spurs striker Harry Kane in second.
