Adrian Clarke looks at the standout individual statistics by position over the course the 2019/20 season so far.
With 16 assists from 26 appearances, and 14 of those coming from open play, the brilliant Belgian is back to his very best this season.
Effective anywhere in the Man City midfield, De Bruyne's remarkable ability to pick out his team-mates with probing passes is a familiar sight.
|Key passes open play||Passes into box*||Big chances created|
|De Bruyne||72||De Bruyne||309||De Bruyne||23|
Three of the most impressive attacking midfielders in the Premier League are English.
McNeil currently ranks third behind Man City pair De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez for big chances created.
Cutting inside on to his favoured left foot, Mahrez has been the most productive attacking midfielder or winger in front of goal.
He has the best minutes-per-goal ratio out of the players in those positions, scoring seven times at a rate of once every 198 minutes.

Much like his head coach Frank Lampard once did, the 21-year-old operates as a box-to-box player making smart, late runs into the area.

When it comes to wingers delivering whipped crosses from outside the box, Adama Traore has been the Premier League's very best.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers star has added plenty of end product to his game this season and is key to his side's attack.
Like McNeil, Traore's progress has been impressive, and you can expect to see these two at the top end of the assist charts in the near future.
