Thomas Muller is now outright second on the chart for the top assist-makers in Europe for the 2020/21 campaign within the top five leagues.

The German had been within the grouping on five prior to this weekend, but on Saturday he recorded an assist for the opening goal for Kingsley Coman in Bayern's 3-1 away win at Stuttgart.

The new list has been curbed slightly with players needing to have set up five or more goals to feature now.

Muller may have bridged the gap slightly, but the runaway leader remains Harry Kane, who has assisted a superb nine goals in the Premier League so far.

He failed to register one at the weekend, however, as Tottenham drew 0-0 away at Chelsea.

Eintracht Frankfurt's Daichi Kamada is a new entry.
