Goalkeepers are often the focus of attention when it comes to goals, but they know better than anyone else that their potential will be greatly diminished if they do not have a good teammate. A.D. Since its inception in 1992, the UK's biggest airline has seen some impressive results, but those with the potential to reach goals have been difficult to reach. Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne is doing his best to lead the team to the top of the table, but he is following in the footsteps of a handful of world-class players who have dominated the division over the years. We take a look at the top eight Premier League top performers and explain how they came up with such a popular list.
Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United Beckham's crosses are always fast hitting, and the external arc makes it very difficult to prevent them from entering the attacker's path or hitting the 'safe corridor'. After winning six Premier League titles with United, the 'Golden Ball' continues to play for Real Madrid, Milan and PSG, but his legacy remains at Old Trafford.
7. Steven Gerrard - Liverpool (92) Assistant
Liverpool's long-serving captain and former leader has never won a league title for his hometown club. A spectacular evening in Istanbul that inspired Gerard to lead his side to an unexpected Champions League victory. He has scored 55 goals for the Reds in the Premier League and the odds are impressive. Long distance football is one of his many talents.
6. David Silva - Manchester City (93)
One of the biggest earners in the world over the last 20 years, David Silva could be Manchester City's greatest ever player. A.D. In 2010, the new era of Man City came from Valencia, Spain. He was there for all four Champions League victories before returning to Spain last summer. In the years that followed, we saw Silva create his masterpieces year after year using his magical feet as a brilliant artist. El Mago ended his career with 60 league goals and 93 assists, the biggest of which came in 2012/13 when he scored six goals and 15 assists in his first season in charge of City.
5. Dennis Berghamp - Arsenal (94) Assistant
The legacy of Dennis Bergkamp cannot be overstated. He was one of the most majestic English footballers ever. His stats, on the other hand, are impressive. In 11 Premier League appearances for Arsenal, the Dutchman has scored 98 goals and provided 92 assists. Bergkamp, the second-best striker in league history, has won three league titles in north London and was a crucial part of the Invincibles' long unbeaten run.
4. Frank Lampard - West Ham, Chelsea, Manchester City - (102)
Frank Lampard has won three Premier League titles and the Champions League with Chelsea since joining West Ham United in his youth. Lampard's most productive season was 2009/10, with Chelsea scoring 22 goals and 14 assists to win the Premier League. He has 91 assists for the South London club, 13 for the Hammers, and one for Manchester City in his entire Premier League career.
3. Wayne Rooney - Everton, Manchester United (103)
Rooney's short time in blue is remembered by many Everton fans for his impact on the club. But he is also remembered for his impressive performances at Manchester United, producing goals for the club around him. The 36-year-old England's all-time leading goalscorer is the manager of Derby County.
2. Cesc Fabregas - Arsenal, Chelsea (111)
Twice in the race, he was a passing master and a delight to see. In his youth with Arsenal, the Spaniard proved his mettle on his feet, allowing him to move to Barcelona. But he soon returned to London, this time with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. He averaged 376 balls and 1,364 passes in 350 games in England.
1. Ryan Giggs - Manchester United (162).
The Manchester United icon is second only to Gareth Barry (653) in 632 games. However, it is not easy to assist 162 goals directly, especially at a time when the division is in full swing. The Welsh wizard was backed by his incredibly talented teammates and manager Sir Alex Ferguson, but it was up to him to make the crazy run and make the delivery. The first thing he needs to do after 24 years in the first team is to leave a lasting legacy as an all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.
