Premier League is back on our screen this weekend. International break was not boring as we are used to because we had the new UEFA Nations League and AFCON Qualifiers to enjoy. The league action in England resumes this Saturday with a big clash between Tottenham and Liverpool at Wembley. Manchester United will want to win two in a row but impressive Watford might have other ideas. Unai Emery will take his Arsenal boys to St. James Park to face Newcastle United. Chelsea might be top of the table by Monday if they beat Cardiff City at home while Man City entertains Fulham at Etihad. Today, we want to identify and celebrate the six most creative players in the Premier League so far.
6. Willian- 9 Goal-scoring Chances
Willian insists he never wanted to leave Chelsea in the summer and hopes he will remain at Stamford Bridge for the next five years.

Chelsea winger Willian has created 9 goal-scoring chances so far in the Premier League. The Brazilian needs only 24.8 minutes to create a chance which is a better number than Mohamed Salah who is ranked second. Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is still not sure who to start with between him and Pedro. However, so far he has managed to get a perfect balance.
Other players with nine chances created so far include Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton), José Holebas (Watford), and Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth).
5. Andrew Robertson-10 Goal-scoring Chances
Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has created 10 goal-scoring chances for his teammates but he needed 36 minutes per chance. This is still a wonderful return given that he is a defender expected to do another job at the back by Jurgen Klopp. However, when the team is playing well, everybody tends to be flying and this is where the Reds are at the moment. Tottenham Hotspurs will be their biggest test so far this weekend.
4. Sergio Aguero- 10 Goal-scoring Chances
Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero is expected to score goals to help his team win matches. However, the Argentine attacker is also important to the team in terms of creating chances for others. He is the only striker in our top six. This shows he is a team player ready to give something extra to win matches. In four matches so far, he has netted 3 goals and created 10 more goal-scoring chances. Pep Guardiola will be impressed by that return. He has needed 33.5 per chance created.
