The performance of the strikers is discussed every season. They are often the leading contenders for the Golden Ball, Golden Boot and other prestigious awards. At the same time, people who help them achieve high-performance indicators fade into the background. We will pay due to attention to them now. Next, let’s take a closer look at the best assistants from the top leagues in the current season.
The best assistants of the current Premier League season are Liverpool players. This list is headed by defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has ten assists. Next to him is Mohamed Salah, who has already given nine assists. At the same time, the Egyptian is also the top scorer of the Premier League, with 16 goals scored. Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and West Ham winger Jarrod Bowen complete the top three. These players have eight assists on their account.
Trent is one of the most creative players in the Premier League. Right now, he is the best assistant in the Premier League. Although he has serious pursuers, the young Englishman can establish himself in this status at the end of the season. Pogba may join the fight for the title of the best assistant of the Premier League. The midfielder of “MU” played two times fewer matches than Trent but gave eight assists simultaneously. On the other hand, Liverpool players have more chances for assists than the representatives of the “MU” since the Merseysiders’ forwards score much more often.
The best assistant of the Italian Championship right now is Domenico Berardi. To date, the Sassuolo winger has given nine assists. Berardi, by the way, is among the top three players of Serie A in the goal + pass system, having also scored ten goals on his account. Next on the list of the best assistants of the Italian Championship are Inter midfielder Hakan Chalhanogu and Lazio midfielder Sergei Milinkovich-Savic. Both players have eight assists on their account.
Berardi is having an excellent season. He has improved last year’s figure in assists and scored 19 points in the goal+pass system. Chalhanoglu is also doing well, despite the change of club registration. For half a season at Inter, he gave only one assist less than in the entire last campaign at Milan. Milinkovic-Savic is as good as ever (8 goals and eight assists), but Lazio is stalling again. Biancocelesti have not lost their chances for the Champions League yet, but they are not stable either.
The best assistant of the Spanish Championship right now is Oscar Trejo. The Rayo Vallecano midfielder has given nine assists so far. So far, this is the best indicator in La Liga. In 2nd place is Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema, who has seven assists. Daniel Parejo (Villarreal), Iker Munyain (Athletic) and Nabil Fekir (Betis) have 6 assists each. The Frenchman helps Verdiblancos stay in the top three teams of the Spanish Championship, for which the club estimates its player at 80 million euros.
Rayo Vallecano became one of the best La Liga clubs in the first half of the season. For some time, the bees even stayed in the European Cup zone. By now, Rayo Vallecano has dropped below the top ten in the Spanish championship standings. However, the team continues to surprise periodically, as does its 33-year-old captain, the best assistant in the league. It is noteworthy that Trejo has never given so many assists before, even speaking in the Segunda. Separately, it is also worth noting Benzema. The Frenchman has a shock season and is a contender for many individual awards.
In the French Championship, three players at once claim the title of the best assistant. Dimitri Payet (Marseille), Kylian Mbappe (PSG) and Jonathan Kloss (Lens) each have 9 assists. However, Lionel Messi is gradually getting closer to this group. The Argentine has already recorded seven assists and generally looks more cheerful in the second half of the season. But all the same, this is a weak indicator for the Parisian striker, given that in La Liga, he used to make 20 or more assists.
It is worth noting Payet, who claimed the title of the best assistant in Ligue 1. However, then the Frenchman lost this title to Memphis Depay. Kloss is also showing himself well, who helps Lance to fight for European cups with such serious teams as Lyon, Monaco and Rennes. Moreover, the footballer has the best season in his career regarding the number of assists. Well, Mbappe is not greedy for assists for partners while also participating in the League 1 goalscoring race.
The best assistant of the Bundesliga and all top European leagues is Thomas Muller. The Bayern midfielder has recorded 16 assists in the German Championship to date. The German gives an average of 0.73 assists per match. This is the best indicator among all the top leagues that have played 20 or more matches in a season. In the two previous campaigns, Muller became the best assistant in the Bundesliga, although Jaydon Sancho was a fierce rival to him in this regard. Consequently, he is also the best in terms of the number of assists in Bayern.
Mueller’s closest assistant pursuer in the Bundesliga is Florian Wirtz. The Bayer midfielder recorded ten assists in the National Championship. In the current season, the 18-year-old midfielder is showing himself great. He is one of the key players of his team and helps it stay in the top three of the Bundesliga. According to rumours, Bayern is already interested in the player, but it’s too early for the guy to think about top clubs. First, we need to return the Champions League to Leverkusen.
