Which pairing is the most lethal partnership in the Premier League?

Can anyone catch up with Bournemouth's bromance?

Batman and Robin, Holmes and Watson… Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser.

The Bournemouth duo have been like Yin and Yang this campaign with Fraser to Wilson being the League’s most common route to goal.

Man City dominate the rest of the list (no shocks there), which includes some predictable pairings and one or two which could surprise you.

Sane has got ten assists so far this season and when the pair play together, they look electric.

Of Jesus’ six Premier League goals, the German has been on hand to set three of them up.

Sane has been busy both as both the provider and the beneficiary this season, scoring eight League goals.

And the German’s fellow winger, Sterling has been the rum to his raisin, chipping in with a healthy three assists.

Helping hands

You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.

That appears to be the motto for the Man City front line.

The fact that The Citizens become the first team in Europe’s top five leagues to score a hundred goals this season explains the multiple entries on this list.

10. Aaron Ramsey to Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (3 assists)

All smiles between these two

All smiles between these two

Juventus bound Aaron Ramsey is a surprising name on the list considering he has spent the majority of the season on the bench.

The Welshman has made a strong impact when he is playing, chipping in with six assists, although Ramsay hasn’t registered one since December.

Three of those have gone to Arsenal’s talisman, Aubameyang, who must be keen for the former Cardiff City man to stick around.

These two were always going to make the list, weren’t they?

It is the fourth most common route to goal in Premier League history. The pair are currently on 18 goals, they need just six more to draw level with the formidable Frank Lampard to Didier Drogba record.

Hands off Real Madrid, hands off.

8. Jose Holebas to Roberto Pereyra (3 assists)

The Watford pair are an unlikely inclusion.

Made in Greece, finished in Argentina – on show in Watford.

Holebas is the first defender to make the list and it’s the former Juventus man, Pereyra, who is finishing the chances off.

Could this pairing be an anomaly? Or a partnership to keep your eyes on?

7. Mohamed Salah to Sadio Mane (3 assists)

No surprises here…

No surprises here…

What is surprising is that this is the only combination of Liverpool’s front three on the list.
The trio terrorised Europe last season, and the two wingers have been at it again this campaign.
While it was the Egyptian King banging them in last year, Mane has taken the lead role this season.

He is the top scoring player from open play this season with 17 goals.

6. Alexandre Lacazette to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (3 assists)

Arsenal’s front two can play off each other brilliantly

We were hoping we wouldn’t have to use the phrase Lacabang today, but such is life.

The two front men have been dynamite this season and the Frenchman, who is often in the more central role, has been there to offer three assists to his fellow strike partner.

It has been a slightly dry run for the pair with all of those assists coming in 2018.

5. Diogo Jota to Raul Jimenez (4 assists)

The pair have been crucial to Wolves this season

With Wolves being this season’s surprise package, these two can take a lot of the credit that’s being giving to the Wanderers.

With Jota’s tireless running and Jiminez’s classic centre forward style, they have found their debut seasons in the Premier League relatively easy.

The Mexican striker’s goal against Chelsea was a prime example of how these two can counter attack so well.

4. Callum Wilson to Ryan Fraser (3 assists)

These two have scored over 40% of the Cherries’ goals

Relationships are all about give and take.

While Fraser to Wilson has been the trend for Bournemouth this season, the England striker has also been on hand to assist three goals for his partner in crime.

Where would Eddie Howe and Bournemouth be without these two?

3. Sergio Aguero to Raheem Sterling (4 assists)

Aguero can also provide for his team-mates

Those Sky Blues players are all for one, one for all.

You would imagine that Man City’s all-time leading goalscorer would be on the receiving end of the assists, right?

Aguero has in fact been on hand to assist four of Sterling’s 15 Premier League goals this season.

Surely two candidates for Player of the Year?

2. Salomon Rondon to Ayoze Perez (4 assists)

Sweet’n’sour up top for Newcastle

Rafael Benitez will be counting his lucky stars he has Rondon at his disposal.

While his ten goals have been more than useful for the Magpies, his recent assists to Perez look to be pivotal.

Two of the four came in the dramatic 3-2 win against Everton earlier in the month which was a huge step towards Newcastle’s survival.

Who is number one Callum?

Like peas and carrots… 

While Wilson to Fraser has been effective, the more conventional midfield to striker route to goal comes out on top.

Can the pair carry their form on for the remainder of the season?
Or will one of the Man City pairings catch the duo?
