Azpilicueta-Morata connection working wonders for Chelsea

Cesar Azpilicueta has now set up six goals for fellow Spaniard Álvaro Morata this season, making their link-up the most prolific in the Premier League.

Álvaro Morata was once again on the receiving end of yet another Cesar

When Morata fired a powerful header past Brighton’s Matt Ryan in the first 

minute of the second half at Stamford Bridge, he brought up his 10th 

Premier League goal of the season and the sixth time his international 

colleague Azpilicueta had supplied the pass. No other duo have been as 

prolific when it comes to assists for the same goal scorer in England’s top 

flight this season.

The Premier League top assist-makers

Tottenham’s record-breaking star Harry Kane has been set up four times 

apiece by Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier, while there are four three-goal 


David Silva has assisted Gabriel Jesus three times for Manchester City, 

while Leroy Sané is responsible for the same number of Raheem Sterling 

goals for the runaway league leaders.

Three of Alexandre Lacazette’s eight Arsenal goals have come courtesy of 

Aaron Ramsey, while Riyad Mahrez has a hat-trick of assists for Jamie 

Vardy in an echo of Leicester City’s 2015-16 title triumph.
