The Premier League’s most creative players generally find a way to unpick even the most stubborn defensive units.
Kevin De Bruyne’s sparkling performances in 2019-20 saw him become only the second player in Premier League history to hit the 20 mark for assists in a single campaign, matching Thierry Henry’s tally from the 2002-03 season.
Most assists in a single Premier League season
- 🇧🇪 Kevin De Bruyne: 20 (Man City 19/20)
- 🇫🇷 Thierry Henry: 20 (Arsenal 02/03)
- 🇩🇪 Mesut Özil: 19 (Arsenal 15/16)
- 🇧🇪 Kevin De Bruyne: 18 (Man City 16/17)
- 🇪🇸 Cesc Fàbregas: 18 (Chelsea 14/15)

De Bruyne’s incredible consistency at the top level is there for all to see, with the brilliant Belgian making three separate appearances in this esteemed all-time list.
At 29 years old, Man City’s playmaker in-chief is right at the peak of his powers and Pep Guardiola will lean heavily on De Bruyne’s abilities as City aims to finish the job they started against Man City in the Champions League round of 16.
