Pogba presently the king of assist in Europe

Paul Pogba’s influence is clear to Manchester United supporters, and now the Frenchman’s outstanding contribution has been highlighted by a statistic that emerged earlier this week.

After setting up two goals in the 3-0 win over Stoke City, Pogba now has the best assists-to-games record of any player in the top five European leagues (England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain).
There are six players who have all chalked up nine assists, including Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane, plus Paris Saint-Germain’s world-record signing Neymar, but Paul has the edge on them all because he has made fewer appearances due to his periods of injury and suspension.

Here are the players on 9 assists:
Paul Pogba, Manchester United: 13 Premier League appearances
Neymar, Paris Saint-Germain: 14 Ligue 1 appearances
Philipp Max, FC Augsburg: 18 Bundesliga appearances
Pione Sisto, Celta Vigo: 19 La Liga appearances
Leroy Sane, Manchester City: 21 Premier League appearances
Florian Thauvin, Olympique de Marseille: 21 Ligue 1 appearances
Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City: 23 Premier League appearances
