So which players have the most Premier League assists? Do not be surprised many die-hard fans of the EPL might not even be able to answer this question. Why?

The Premier League is the most-watched in the world and has seen the best creators that football has to offer. Here is the leading pack on the all-time list of Premier League assists.
