Jadon Sancho, Joshua Kimmich and the Bundesliga's assist king contenders in 2019/20

Borussia Dortmund teenager Jadon Sancho set the bar with a Bundesliga-leading 14 assists last season. Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich was not far behind - who will top the Bundesliga's list of providers in 2019/20?

Thorgan Hazard (Borussia Dortmund)

Appearances: 10 (8 starts)
Assists: 6
Assists per game: 0.60

Hazard, who was Gladbach's top provider last season with 10, has carried on where he left off and already has six after 11 rounds of matches in 2019/20, after laying on a goal for the sixth time this term in the 3-0 win over Wolfsburg on Matchday 10.

Thomas Müller (Bayern Munich)

Appearances: 11 (6 starts)
Assists: 6
Assists per game: 0.55

Müller remains Bayern's best provider in 2019/20, after setting up goals for Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry in the 4-0 rout of Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker on Matchday 11.

Appearances: 9 (8 starts)
Assists: 5

Last season's most prolific provider is at it again this year. The England international is right up there again with five assists, most recently having come off the bench on Matchday 7 to tee up Achraf Hakimi in BVB's 2-2 draw in Freiburg.
