One of Kevin De Bruyne’s virtues is his ability to assist teammates. As a result, he has become the seventh best assistant in the history of the Premier League. The Belgian has provided 92 assists throughout his career in the English league, a figure within the reach of very few. And interestingly, ahead of him in the ranking of the best assistants in the history of the Premier League are two Spaniards: David Silva and Cesc Fábregas.
De Bruyne’s six assists this season in the Premier League have placed him just one short of David Silva’s 93 during his 10 seasons in the Premier League. Everything indicates that the Belgian midfielder will surpass the Canarian this season. At the moment, he has six assists in this edition of the Premier League. The next match that the Manchester City midfielder will play and in which he will have the opportunity to match or surpass Silva, will be on October 2 against Manchester United in the English city derby.
De Bruyne still has a long way to go to The other Spanish ‘in the running’. This is Cesc Fabregas. The current Italian Como midfielder reached 111 assists during the 12 seasons he played in the Premier League. The world champion with the Spanish National Team has the honor of being the second highest assistant in the history of the English league, only surpassed by Ryan Giggs, with 162.
This privileged ranking is completed by Bergkamp’s fourth position (94) and Lampard’s third (102).. The Dutchman only has two more assists than De Bruyne, so everything also seems to indicate that he will surpass him this season, while he still has 10 to catch up with the Englishman.
