Premier League assists normally belong to attacking midfielders like Kevin De Bruyne and Paul Pogba. However, a good striker does not only score goals. He should be able to help others contribute too. Today, we, therefore, want to look at forwards with most assists in the Premier League so far.
6. Harry Kane- 2 Assists (24 goals)
Tottenham Hotspurs fans will hope Harry Kane injury is not too bad because they need him now more than before. England forward suffered an ankle injury last weekend in the 4-1 win against Bournemouth. The team scored all four goals without him but there is no doubt they need him soon. The double Golden Boot winner who is also the joint top scorer this season has assisted 2 goals and netted 24 more.
5. Alexandre Lacazette- 3 Assists (9 goals)
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette career at Emirates is facing serious challenges. Since the arrival of Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in January, the going has become even tougher. The Frenchman must get back up to claim his place in the team or else he will not be in France World Cup squad. This season so far he has assisted only 3 goals.
4. Alvaro Morata- 5 Assists (10 goals)
Chelsea record signing Alvaro Morata has not enjoyed the kind of season he had planned for when he ditched Real Madrid last summer. However, 10 goals and 5 assists in his first season in England is a decent return. Fernando Torres had a worse season at the Bridge when he arrived from Liverpool.
