While scoring goals is something that every top striker wants to do, other players want to contribute to the goals.
For a long time, those assisting goals have been rarely recognized, which is why the Premier League has been given the Playmaker Award to honor those with the most assists in a season.
Paul Pogba started well on that front for Manchester United, but Trent Alexander-Arnold proves that shooting can be done by defenders too. But who are the top helpers in the top five European championships this season?
